After a particularly stormy match, Maccabi Netanya succeeded yesterday (Wednesday) in defeating Hapoel BS in the final of the Toto Cup and winning the first title in 40 years. While the Diamonds celebrated all night, the southerners took the loss hard and, among other things, harshly criticized the match referee Eitan Shmoelevich.
The one who responded to this criticism is the chairman of the Judges' Union, Giora Inbar, who said today: "The Judges' Union takes very seriously the unbridled arrogance of Hapoel BS officials towards Judge Eitan Shmoelevich, and the cynical and ugly attempt to damage his integrity, professionalism and credibility! Eitan is one The talented and veteran referees in Israel, is in an excellent professional season and it is no coincidence that he is assigned to the biggest and most sensitive games - in the league, the state cup and the Toto cup.
Inbar also added: "I'm sorry that instead of each team dealing with learning lessons within the club regarding the wild and violent behavior of the players and the benches - they choose the easy escape: to divert the fire towards the referee of the match and try to blackmail him for not doing injustice. I do not accept this, the union does not accept That's it and it's time to stop this campaign of incitement!!".
