Maccabi Haifa praises: "Noble above the league". Haziza may return to Netanya - voila! sport


The Greens are satisfied with the smooth return to the league and are busy with the contracts of Sherry and Lavi. The captain demands a low release clause, compliments of Roi Mishpa

Summary: Maccabi Haifa - Bnei Sakhnin 1:3 (Sport 1)


Satisfaction in Maccabi Haifa after the victory yesterday (Monday) 1:3 over Bnei Sakhnin.

In Haifa, they feared that in light of the opponent's many shortcomings, it would shut down and make it very difficult for them.

This indeed happened because Din David made it 0:1 and after that Sakhnin actually started to attack and also reached situations.

"Even though everyone around said it would be an easy game, we knew it would be a difficult game despite and maybe even because of their shortcomings," said an official in Haifa, "the goal was to win the game and get down to business and we did it."

Coach Barak Becher was very pleased with the aggressiveness and determination his players showed in the return game to the league after the World Cup.

"See that all teams take time to get into things and it was important to start with a win."

Those who received compliments are Dean David, Omer Azili and Shawn Goldberg.

The last two recently extended their contracts and Haifa are very happy with it.

Bacher yesterday half jokingly said that the team would make Atzili their "Messi" and in Haifa they do attach great importance to the midfielder who scored his tenth goal.

"He has crazy numbers and doesn't stop," said one of his friends, "There is no doubt that in our league he is above everyone else."

Another player that Haifa really wants to finish with the issue of extending his contract is Charon Sherry.

The Dutch midfielder started the game yesterday on the bench after a few days in which he suffered from a high fever and even lost weight due to the illness.

The team did not want to risk Sherry and he only entered during the second half.

Sherry set conditions, including a significant upgrade and a contract for at least two years, and it is estimated that he will sign soon.

Besides Sherry in the group, they also want to sit with Neta Lavi.

At the moment it seems that the midfielder who is interested in going to Europe, will sign only if a release clause is inserted at a relatively low price tag that will not make it difficult for him to be sold.

Besides Sherry and Lavi, Barak Becher, who has a contract for next season, is expected to sit down with the club's leaders and discuss upgrading and extending his contract.

Bacher wants there to be no mass release at the end of the season and also for the team to strengthen to make another European trip next season - if and when the Greens secure a place in Europe at the end of the current season.

Even before the summer, Haifa wants to strengthen even in January when Dia Saba is still a candidate.

Maccabi Haifa hopes that some of the injured will return to full activity by the match against Maccabi Netanya next Monday.

The team believes that Nate Lavi will be fit to start, while Dolev Haziza will try to return to training this week and then it will be decided whether he will be in the squad for the game.

Dylan Batvansika is also expected to return to the squad against Netanya, while Daniel Sondgren and Mahmoud Jaber will be absent.

Josh Cohen tends to choose conservative treatment and if it is finally decided not to undergo surgery, the goalkeeper will undergo rehabilitation in an attempt to return within about two months.

The club understands that it may be a longer recovery time.

In Haifa they still haven't made a decision on whether to go for another senior goalkeeper when as of now the credit is given to Roy Mishpet.

Yesterday he won compliments when he saved from Spiga after a dangerous situation by Guy Melamed with a fragile 0:1 advantage.
