Hapoel BS midfielder Shafi Suleimanov will not be able to take off with the team for the match against Lech Poznan in the Conference League. The reason: Suleimanov holds a Russian passport and due to the complex political situation and the fighting between Russia and Ukraine and Polish involvement, Russians have been banned from entering the country until further notice.
Owner Alona Barkat and CEO Guy Premor have made great efforts in recent days to arrange Shafi's travel along with the other players, including talks with the embassies here in Israel, but despite everything, it was made clear that the situation is very complex and sensitive, so there is no choice but to keep the relationship in Israel.
Suleimanov is considered one of the best and most significant foreigners in coach Aliniv Barda's lineup.
In a short time he integrated into the team and became one of the professional keys for the cup holder.
