First night without an Oscar: the responsibility placed on Parfa Giagon - voila! sport


Precisely after the impressive cooperation between them that produced the first goal in the game of the season against Maccabi Haifa, Giagon was left without a Gloch. Will he be able to take much of the burden on him now?

Summary: Maccabi Tel Aviv - Maccabi Haifa 0:3 (Sport1)

A gray Kia Picanto entered the training facility of Maccabi Tel Aviv yesterday morning.

Parfa Giagon is at the helm.

Not particularly high amps are scattered on the internal access road after passing the first gate.

In the afternoon, there are a lot of children from the youth department there and extra caution should be taken.

Giagon went through the bumpers like he was on the grass five days ago against Shawn Goldberg.

Frank Belhassan and Avi Nemani take care of him in partnership.

Belhassan was much more militant about two months ago.

He said that when the transfer window opens, he will report to Maccabi Tel Aviv and ask to let the boy go out on loan to play.

Nemani was more level-headed when asked about him.

He knew that there is nothing to talk about in November about what will happen in January and that in football everything can change.

No. 8 experienced the vicissitudes of football firsthand, but it is doubtful that he too estimated that Giagon would undergo a 180-degree change in his position.

Nemani was one of the closest people to Voladan Ivić and the relationship between them became very strong during the Serb's first term during the Corona period.

Nemani called a lot, tried to help with everything that was needed at a time when the world did not know where we were going with the deadly epidemic.

In their conversations at the beginning of this season, Nemani tried to explain to Ivic that he should abandon the formation of three defenders and switch to playing with another attacking midfielder instead of a defender.

The head of course also worked in favor of his client Giagon.

Barak Yitzhak also pressed from his side as a professional manager.

He recommended giving more to Giagon, but Ivic believed in his way and one of the biggest casualties was the midfielder from the Ivory Coast.

You could often see Giagon leaving the stadium and getting on the first bus.

He didn't hide the fact that he was angry.

He just wanted to play.

In Aitor Karanka's debut, Giagon only got crumbs towards the end.

It was an easy home game against MS.


At the end, all the players went up to eat together in the banquet hall in Bloomfield, and Giagon got on a bus parked outside Bloomfield and didn't want to talk to anyone.

Today things look different.

At the beginning of the season with Ivić, he was sure that his route would look different.

Against Hapoel Hadera in the second round, he started in the lineup and the team lost 0:6 away.

A week later he came on as a substitute against Kiryat Shmona, but scored his first goal of the season and felt good.

Ivić repaid him a week later when he went out to play in Ashdod and preferred him over Oskar Gloch in the 11th, but Maccabi Tel Aviv dropped two precious points at the YA Stadium and it seems that Giagon was the one who paid the heaviest price of all.

Three months have passed since that game in September 10 and until Giagon got the team shirt again. It was after the World Cup in the Toto Cup match for placement against Hapoel Jerusalem. Maccabi Tel Aviv won, Giagon played the whole game and even scored. In the next game he was sure to get the credit and start, but Ivic Went to an away game in Reina and preferred to sit him on the bench.

Giagon warmed up for a long time and even heard some grunts from local Reina fans.

He entered only in the 90th minute and was very angry.

Ivic decided to go with him in the lineup in the two games after that and even got a goal from him in the top five against Hapoel Hadera, but the zig zag continued in the following games, including the first two games of Karanka.

Much depends on him.

All that he had treasured inside, all the frustration he had stored, Giagon brought to the game against Maccabi Haifa.

Karanka went with him rather surprisingly because Gabi Kanikowski was good in the Basque's first couple of games, but Karanka knew it was a game of be or not and that he had to bet.

He sent Giagon to the grass with Oskar Gloch.

So different from Ivić's choice of players in the first game of the season at Sami Ofer, Karanka went 'all in'.

on the whole cash register.

Instead of a lone Eran Zahavi in ​​the attack as was the case in Haifa, Maccabi Tel Aviv's most attacking quartet took to the field.

It was no coincidence that Gloch was the one who scored Giagon's first goal.

Only those who are really close to Gloch knew how much he wants to play together with Giagon, how much he is not afraid that Giagon will take some of the limelight away from him.

How much he believes that if both of them are together in the attack, one will cross the other.

Tonight, in the Tel Aviv derby, Giagon will be alone.

He has quite a few calibers around him, but as a declared attacking midfielder he is from now on the most important figure of Maccabi Tel Aviv.

It already means pressure, it already means responsibility.

It's no longer fighting for minutes and getting returns for a move you make, but being dominant in every game.

Next month he will be only 22 years old and a lot of the offensive load is shifting to him.

Only two months ago, one of his agents said that he would not stay after this window.

Now a great deal of what will be cooked this season depends on Parfa Giagon.
