"Maccabi Tel Aviv was not built well enough, and coached badly" - Voila! sport


Around the club, there are plenty of excuses, and even a player admits: "Not good enough to win a championship." Karanka did not find a solution to leaving Gloch

Summary of Maccabi Netanya's victory 1:2 over Maccabi Tel Aviv (Sport 1)

After last night's (Monday) 2:1 loss to Maccabi Netanya, Maccabi Tel Aviv admits that the chances of winning the season's championship have decreased significantly.

Even the optimists among the Maccabi Tel Aviv players and the club's employees spoke last night in despair.

There are also those who do not raise their hands completely and remind that a month ago the situation was the same and the team nevertheless knew how to return to the race after the victory over Maccabi Haifa, but the feeling is that this morning, when the distance is 8 points from the champion and when Hapoel Beer Sheva is in the middle, the fight for the title is very close to being closed when the Yellows are not Part of it.

"You can talk about energy and motivation, but that wasn't the story last week against Sakhnin either," said a player in the team last night, hinting that Aitor Karanka's famous meeting was not in place.

"We have many more problems than attitude and ambition. Currently, this is not a good enough team to win a championship."

Karanka closes six league games at Maccabi Tel Aviv and has a bad record of 50 percent success.

He came to yesterday's game with two wins and three draws, and added a loss.

A total of nine points from a possible 18 since Vladan Ivic left.

Since Oscar Gloch left, Maccabi Tel Aviv with two points out of nine.

"We haven't found a solution for Oscar's departure," they said last night around the club.

"One player probably changed the whole team and without him it's not the same."

Gloch would arrange balls for Eran Zahavi, Gloch would find solutions for the bunkers and when Gloch was not found, Gabi Kanikowski could not get into his shoes.

It's probably not fair to compare the two midfielders, and the one who stayed also said he wanted to be Kanikowski and not Gloch, but he was the first to take the place of the young talent and fails to deliver the goods, when last night he had another very mediocre game.

It seems that when the pressure speaks, Kanikowski has a very hard time providing the answers.

Karanka should have found a solution for Gluch's departure and must also try other things, and not just go with Eran Zahavi and Djorja Jovanovic together in attack.

Last night, the poor ability of both of them was very noticeable in the first half and the team was surprised when the coach did not make a change at the break and did not put Rarsh Ilya in place of the Serbian striker.

Instead, Karanka waited for later minutes in the second half and when he had already introduced Ilya, for some reason he took Parfa Giagon out.

The decision to keep Dan Beaton out of the squad for one more game is also incomprehensible.

Instead of trying to gain something from Bitton's ability to create situations from corners and stationary balls, Karanka once again put on Joris van Overeem, one of the more unnecessary players in Maccabi Tel Aviv's squad.

There may be something in Van Overeem, but when you have Eyal Golsa and Abi Ricken on the bench, it is unnecessary to keep him as well.

At the press conference at the end of the game, Cranka arrived very calm and did not really go wild on the players.

He continued to say that he has the best squad in the world, but it is clear that he also understands today that the game against Maccabi Haifa was extraordinary.

The show was only a flash and the real Maccabi Tel Aviv is the one that played yesterday in Netanya and had a lot of difficulty in the pressure game that it wants to produce in the face of the pressure game that they put on it.

She had difficulty creating situations, kicking from a distance and again with stationary balls and corners from which you can score an easy goal.

It was Zlatanovic on the other side who was close to scoring with a corner kick, when again Andre Geraldes did not know how to cover.

Those around Maccabi Tel Aviv are already fed up with the excuses that have been heard lately and last night an official who was aware of the details said: "In front of a team that makes a difficult bunker, in front of a team that brings difficult quality, the time has come to say that the truth is that this team was not built well and was poorly trained."
