Turgeman's shares are on the rise, Karanka defends Ilya: "It's a process" - voila! sport


The cup game helped the Maccabi Tel Aviv coach to some conclusions. The young striker took the chance with both hands, Van Overeem actually disappointed and the great hope comes from Yonatan Cohen

Tiktuknu: today's summary clip in sports, 1.3 (Sport1)

Aitor Karanka will not jump any of the players to whom he gave a chance last night (Wednesday) in the cup game against Maccabi Petah Tikva, to the starting lineup against Hapoel Jerusalem on Saturday.

But Dor Turgeman can certainly come to Maccabi Tel Aviv training today with the feeling that he got the most out of the cup game in which he cooked and scored on the way to a 1:2 victory.

Even though Maccabi Tel Aviv claims from the summer that Turjeman is a legitimate striker in the team and Barak Itzhaki even insisted not to release him in the last window on loan, the player has not received the recognition he deserves in the last six months.

Even after Stipe Fritza fled to Belgium and even when a foreign striker was not brought in instead of the Croatian, Turgeman mostly dried up, sometimes on the bench and mostly in the stands.

Cooking and a winning goal.

Already in the 2nd minute last night, he ran from the half of the field and passed a sharp and accurate cross to Dan Beaton who rolled in from close range.

A few minutes passed and Turgeman in a beautiful individual performance almost scored the second of the game, but the ball was taken off the goal line.

Later, he hit the crossbar quite well and, like all the other players, he fell asleep for many minutes when the game was already over and became particularly boring.

But towards the end, when Eran Zahavi entered as a substitute, Maccabi Tel Aviv again entered into the commitment.

After the goal she conceded, she did not want to end a match against a team from the national team in a draw.

Pressing the gas pedal produced a fine soccer move which Turgeman finished with a strong and accurate pass to Danny Amos' goal.

Maccabi Tel Aviv advanced in style to the semi-finals and in light of the work that Maccabi Haifa is doing outside, they should be the favorite to win the state cup and the only one who can do a double this season.

"Obviously, when you have Eran and Yovanovic, and especially when the coach plays with both of them and likes them very much, you will have very few opportunities," Maccabi Tel Aviv admitted last night in relation to Turgeman.

Along with this, Kiryat Shalom believe this morning that Turgeman will gain greater trust, even if it involves finding a formula according to which he will be on the field together with the team's more senior strikers.

did not shine.

Beyond Turgeman, Dan Beaton can also be satisfied this morning and hope that the coach will occasionally bring him in as a substitute.

Beaton has already been on the bench in recent league games, but not partnered and his performance last night could give him some hope of being partnered more.

The ones who recorded a less good game are Rarsh Ilya and Joris van Overeem who rarely get minutes themselves.

Yesterday's game did not boost their stocks, but regarding Ilya, Karanka said: "He is in the process and I am sure that this game will promote him because he needs time to get to know soccer in Israel. He is a very talented player and he is progressing."

It is still too early to determine anything decisive about Ilya and it is really necessary to give such a young player time when he lands for the first time in Israel, but his performance was really not promising and when Yonatan Cohen is already coming back in as a substitute, it is not clear when will be the next time that Cranka will let Romney start.

Cohen came back well after another injury that set him back.

The ball that stuck to the connections from 30 meters in a stationary state, should mark something good for him and for Maccabi Tel Aviv.

If Cohen is from now on even 70 percent of the player who left for Italy, Maccabi Tel Aviv might gain an X factor for the playoffs.

In another matter, the team will check this morning the condition of Ofir Davidzadeh and Derrick Lucassen who complained of injuries and were replaced.

Andre Geraldes and Nir Bitton, who rested yesterday and didn't dress, are also not at their best in terms of health, but they should be in the squad for Saturday.
