Oskar Gloch is acclimatizing to life in Salzburg, and as his agent, attorney Shahar Greenberg, said yesterday in an interview on the sports program on 103FM, Austria is also very enthusiastic about the arrival of the 18-year-old Maccabi Tel Aviv midfielder and look forward to seeing his abilities at the highest levels.

Today (Tuesday) the sports director was interviewed of Red Bull Salzburg, Christoph Freund, who last week arrived in Israel to complete the signing of Gloch for 7 million euros from Maccabi Tel Aviv, and told about the plans and expectations for the new diamond.

When Freund was asked if the coming half of the season would be a kind of preparation for Gloch so that he could become a significant player at Red Bull Salzburg starting next season, he replied: "It is definitely a good plan. We are not pressuring Oskar, he is only 18 years old, he moved to another country for the first time in his life. He played From the age of 6 in Maccabi Tel Aviv and now he has to play in another league, in another country and with a different culture. He should have arrived now, but I am convinced that in the spring the fans will be very satisfied with him. He is a very, very good footballer, but it will take time for him."

Freund also commented on the fact that Salzburg beat Barcelona and other luxury clubs in the battle for Gloch: "There have always been players who were courted by the biggest clubs in the world and came to us, such as Dayo Opemcano and Erling Holland, but yes, Oscar was a very desirable player. We have made a good name for ourselves in recent years For young and talented players from all over the world, who see that in Salzburg they can take the next step and become very sought-after players. It is a great pride that players choose to come to us."

On Friday, Red Bull Salzburg will host Sturm Graz as part of the Austrian Cup and next Saturday will also return to activity in the Austrian league after a long winter break.
