A new era started last night at Hapoel Tel Aviv, when the rights transfer committee approved the new owners of the Red Club.

The "American group", led by the brothers David and Michael Mintzberg, currently receives only 40 percent of the group's shares along with the management rights, but the previous owners - the Nisanov brothers, Zeev Greenberg and Boaz Toshav - will not have a say in the management issue.

The morning after the official announcement, David Mintzberg spoke for the first time about the new era that is dawning at the Khodorov complex: "People are afraid to do business in Israel, but it excites us. There is a lot of work, what made us fall in love with Hapoel Tel Aviv is the tradition and values. Hapoel Tel Aviv brings people together. We hope that in the coming months and years we will give the fans a reason to celebrate. There is nothing to celebrate because we haven't achieved anything yet."

"My brother and I want to invest in sports teams around the world with our partners," Mintzberg added.

Sports have the power to unite people.

Americans invest in sports all over the world, we want to see people invest in Israel as well.

My grandparents and parents grew up with love for Israel.

We see an opportunity in a city like Tel Aviv, in a club like Hapoel Tel Aviv, to do something significant.

There is a lot of work and things that need to be fixed, it will take time, the fans deserve this club to be fixed.

I don't understand football, we will invest and move aside.

Focused mainly on next year and supporting the coach.

My message to the players is to listen to him, I won't tell Chaim Sylves what to do, that would be ridiculous.

We want to be the team that works the hardest, that the players improve in every practice and give their maximum in every game.

"We collected millions of dollars and we will invest millions of dollars. We will see how much we can pay off the debts and how much we can invest for the future. We could have invested ourselves, but we wanted more economic power and to give an opportunity to everyone who wanted to invest in Israel. People are afraid to invest in Israel today, not only because of the global economy but also Because of the situation here. Sports can be an economic engine for Israel. I know how to build organizations, so I hope to help Israel and get more people to invest here.

"We saw that it was necessary to build not only a better team on the field, but also a team off the field. People do five or six jobs at the same time. The budget is important, a decision has to be made and the investors are committed. We want to be a team that not only wins in one year, but consistently. We want to be More in contact with the fans - ticket sales, merchandise, events. This club was the first in Israel with Jews and Arabs in the same team, this is significant for us, the youth department is also important. This is the club with the highest percentage of fans. Our goal matches the goals of the fans, we Here for the long term."

Mintzberg also added and said: "You can do work in the community, beautiful merchandising, an invested website, but if you don't win it's not worth it. Building a big team takes time, we'll try to do it as quickly as possible, but you can't rush it. Experts will praise the Our team and we will examine who can be brought in. We want cooperation with the fans. We did not want to arrive at the end of the season with all the work, but to work long enough in advance. We were supposed to celebrate the club's centenary and it was a difficult year, we hope to celebrate properly next season. We have investors Jews and non-Jews, when we celebrate 100 people will return to Israel after a long time, or come here for the first time.

"I will make mistakes, everyone in Hapoel will make mistakes at some point. Our intention will always be what is best for the club. When mistakes happen, it will be my brother's fault (laughs). If we convince people to invest in Israel, it will be good for the entire league. The next World Cup will have more national teams, whoever invests Here you have to make sure that the clubs are better and that the expansion will give Israel a better chance to advance. You want to do what is best for Hapoel, but also what is best for Israel and for football here. Respect the other owners in the league, it's an amazing league. People who watched the games in Manchester and then were in the Hill Derby Avivi was enthusiastic about the atmosphere. I am enthusiastic about Israeli football, about the success of the youth team."

Below the executive floor, consultant Nick Hammond is set to take command of the professional program, select a coach for next season and make decisions regarding the current roster.

Under Hammond will work Chen Sol who currently serves as the club's scout, and was defined as "very talented" by Mintzberg.
