Kobi Yarofa was introduced in Sakhnin: "Knows exactly which team I have joined" | Israel today


The new coach was introduced at the club after the dismissal of Haim Silves • "We must be in the top playoffs" • Abu Younes: "The test of the result will determine everything"

This morning (Wednesday) Kobi Raba was introduced as the coach of Bnei Sakhnin at a press conference and today he will conduct a first training session with his new players.

As you may remember, Merova started the season as the coach of Hapoel Tel Aviv, but due to the less than good results, the parties parted ways. About two months later, Bnei Sakhnin fired her coach Haim Silves and now Merova begins a new chapter in the northern group.

Sitting next to Medicine at the press conference were Chairman Muhammad Abu Younes and CEO Khaled Douchi.

"I want to thank Chaim Sylves," the chairman opened his words by thanking the previous coach and added: "The beginning was good, but for some reason in the last 5-6 rounds there is a setback in terms of results and happy football, which we are used to.

That's why the decision came to say goodbye and come to an agreement with Kobi Medicine.

For us, today we want to start the league again.

We want committed players.

It is not always the coach's fault.

Haim Silves, the blame is not only on him, the players also have a part in the failure.

You can't replace an entire team, so the coach pays the price.

We want to start a new path."

On the question of whether medicine is a default, he said: "We had conversations with Kobi in the past years and he was a candidate. I mean we believe in him. Journalists cannot come and say that he is a default. We sat with him more than once, it didn't work out for all kinds of reasons. It's time Shaiaman is here and we believe in him. He has successes."

Regarding the goals, he added: "We are not asking for the stars, we want to be at the top of the table. There are players here who can get us there."

Abu Younes was asked why a coach was changed when the team was in seventh place, only two points from the top playoffs and explained: "If I had continued to deteriorate and had been relegated, then you would say that I fell asleep in the guard. We gave another round and another game and we did not see the change. That is why we caused a certain shock. Sakhnin never Didn't run for the championship. We were at the top last year and that's what we want this year as well. In the end, the test of the result will determine everything. The agreement until the end of the season is by agreement, this is also Kobi's demand."

CEO Khaled Duchi said: "In the end we will reach the top playoffs.

Our position is not that bad, the squad gave results and since the loss against Maccabi Tel Aviv the team has been going backwards. There were draws, but that doesn't reflect the reality that we went down all the time. We didn't want to drag it to a place where it can't be fixed."

The new coach, Kobi Merafa, said: "There is an excellent team. When you bring in players like that, the goal is clear and it's the top playoffs. That's clear to me and it doesn't matter who was sitting here. I really hope we succeed. If there were no problems, they wouldn't have changed a coach and I think Chaim did a good job here Good. I know exactly which team I have reached, what needs to be improved, there is some time to work. The team will show good ability according to the level of the players here."

Regarding the connection with Sakhnin, he said: "Factually, there is a good squad here and that's why I'm here. Hapoel Tel Aviv also had a good squad and we made the top playoffs.

This team must be in the top playoffs and you don't need to tell me that, anyway I got here.

anything else?

You already know the answer."

On the replacement of the coaches between the teams, Yarofa said: "Sakhnin is my fifth team in total. I don't come to talk about myself, I know where I've come and what is expected of me. Where is there stability? In big teams. It's a natural thing that you get used to."
