At the age of 37, Ernest Shtakos, goalkeeper of Hapoel Tel Aviv, Hapoel Haifa and the former Hapoel BS, announced his retirement from football yesterday in a post on Instagram.
The Lithuanian made 116 appearances in the Premier League and won two state cups and the Champions League.
The one who failed to make it to the agenda is his agent Dodo Dahan, who broke up and at the same time also attacked the management of Hapoel Tel Aviv, as part of a post on the networks.
"He didn't inform me of anything. He didn't ask and he didn't consult. I'm sure he's disappointed and so am I," Dehan wrote on the networks, "Despite his age (37), I think he's one of the best goalkeepers in the league in the last 5 years. An island of stability. Hapoel Tel Aviv in the decision Unhappy and unclear, they chose not to continue with him this season.
"It broke Ernie and his family. Hapoel and the city of Tel Aviv became their home and because of that they had to move their whole world here back to their country. Ernie was personally hurt by this and as someone who was brought up from a young age for professionalism, perseverance and stability, he suddenly faced the politics of Israeli football. It was already big It is clear to everyone that the decision is unprofessional.
"I want to thank you for your friendship and loyalty: you are probably the greatest goalkeeper I have represented, a true gentleman on and off the field. I regret that I was not able to convince Hapoel to bring you back and Beitar Jerusalem to take you ("good souls" on both sides made sure of this) their loss .
"Actually, the loss is for all of us and especially for a young and great generation of goalkeepers, who could have received from you the Torah and above all the personality. You will remain in the hearts of quite a few Reds fans in Haifa, Beer Sheva and Tel Aviv. Love you and good luck."
