The ability is disappointing and of course it's good to break records, but it's not enough, I want us to improve because it can't last like this. Our football was Far from perfect and we had enough time to complain about this meeting. Hapoel Jerusalem is a great team with character. We prepared well, but we didn't do things well. We will have to improve and tonight I will make sure to improve the team."
On Meshafi's excellence: "He saved us. We can't depend on the goalkeeper, certainly not at home. We need to play much better and with more confidence. We'll sit down and check things, we know it can't go on like this."

concluded: "What can I say after a loss? It's a bit repetitive that precisely against the big leagues we play excellent in attack and a bit soft in defense. The red card also symbolizes that, instead of equalizing we received a red card. We deserved more than a draw, my players are men . We played real football, we moved the ball and we were equal against equals. It doesn't matter because we don't have points. We conceded a goal in the first minute and then another goal from a pass, these are small things that need to be fixed and I'm sorry for the loss. We hope to come here again."

We left with compliments, but not with points. It will be very difficult against Hapoel Tel Aviv, this is a team with a new and good coach And it's always more difficult against a team that changes a coach."

commented on the decision to award a penalty to Hapoel Jerusalem: "I was quite close to the incident. The screen referee called me and I accepted his recommendation. I saw the pass and turned my gaze to the center of the box. The VAR called me claiming there was contact with the left foot and I accepted the decision, I straightened up With her. In the end, the defender slipped and hit the leg, as long as the ball is in the field of play, it's a foul."
