Tikteknu: today's summary clip in sports, 6.3 (Sport1)
After the brother and the agent expressed support for Eran Zahavi following the turmoil in the room in the Israeli national team, this evening (Monday) former player Eyal Berkovic also commented on the issue that led to the team's all-time goal scorer not being invited to the squad for the start of the Euro 2024 qualifiers. "Yossi Benyon and Alon Hazan did not want Eran
Zahavi In the national team. The whole story of the room is spin, it's bullshit," said Eyal Berkovic this evening on the sports program of Ofira Assig and his on Tel Aviv Radio.
Berkovic refrained from commenting on the affair throughout the day and kept his words to the program under his guidance.
"If I were the coach of the national team, I would solve it in a minute and a half. What is this nonsense, a room? Anyone who wants to sleep in a room alone in the national team should accept these conditions. What would it cost the association? Another ten thousand shekels? The only mistake was that they changed Zoertz went to Eran Zahavi's house. He shouldn't have gone for that."
On the golden side.

As I recall, Zahavi remained out of the national team squad after he refused to comply with the demand of the professional team led by Yossi Benyon, to share a room with another player during gatherings.
In recent months, many efforts have been made to return Zahavi to the national team, and the Maccabi Tel Aviv striker even met several times with Yossi Benyon and other senior officials in the association - but the efforts did not bear fruit - and the king of the goals of the Premier League, who scored 15 goals this season in the uniform of Maccabi Tel Aviv, will not be a part from the upcoming games.
Zahavi is the greatest scorer of the Israeli national team of all time, after surpassing the previous record that belonged to Motel' Spiegler.
In total he scored 33 goals in 70 appearances in the national uniform.
His last appearance in the team's uniform was in December 2021, in a match against Austria in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
Israel will open the Euro 2024 qualifier campaign with a home match against Kosovo on the 25th of the month.
Three days later you will be staying with Switzerland.
