Mixed emotions at Maccabi Tel Aviv after the missed opportunity to get closer to Maccabi Haifa at the top of the table, after the 1:1 draw against Bnei Sakhnin tonight (Saturday).
Maccabi Tel Aviv coach, Itor Karanka: "A very weak and bad performance by us.
We talked before the game about the problems with how we approach the game and how we start it and today we made the same stupid mistakes.
In the second half we had more chances but it wasn't enough.
I know the reason why we haven't won twice in a row until now, but I can't explain it, we need to think positively and change the mentality. Everyone saw how we performed against Maccabi Haifa, we will have to return that passion.
I don't care about the points and the opponents, just how we look and we have to work on that.
From my side, I wouldn't have done anything different in this game, I tried to change the game, and then we had an injury that disrupted it."
Eran Zahavi: "You think it will be easy and easy, but it won't be easy, you concede a goal and come under atomic pressure, players lose their positions and this is something that a team that wants to win a championship should not have happen to them. Sakhnin gave more than us. It's a shame we didn't manage to put pressure on the leader. We don't have to wait until the 90th minute to try to decide the games.
"It's a shame that once again we had to chase the opponent the whole game, we come up with many opportunities and miss. To win a championship you have to put together another victory and another victory, but we don't do that. We players have to look in the mirror and give each 100% of ourselves, I don't Says they don't do it, but it's still not connected," Zahavi concluded.
"Without the red we would have achieved more"
The opponent's voices were much better.
The coach, Kobi Yareba, said: "Well done to the boys, being with ten players for so long is very difficult. My team gave everything it could tactically and defensively. Another team would have broken down here with ten players and received 3 or 4 pieces and I am very proud of the players We have a tough game ahead of us against BS.

Bnei Sakhnin goalkeeper Gad Amos, who saved his team during the game from conceding more goals, said: "I'm happy that I was able to help the team get a point, it's my job to get balls out. It's possible that without the red we would have achieved more. We've lost a lot of points so far, but we're just looking at it right now About what happens below and not above. I have nothing to say about the ceremony, they told me you want to put it on and that's what I did."
