Tiktuknu: today's summary clip in sports, 8.3 (Sport1)
The saga of Eran Zahavi and the Israel national team ended with a bang when the Maccabi Tel Aviv striker announced that he would not return to the national team.
In an interview recorded on the Podium podcast, Oren Yosifovitch's sports podcast, about ten months ago and never published, a short segment was released from the interview that will be published soon, in which Zahavi tells about the team players' reaction to the new room procedure of Alon Hazan and Yossi Benyon.
"I didn't like what was happening and I don't like what was happening," Zahavi said.
"Yesterday, players talked to me that in the list of rules they made, there are no more single rooms. There are two people with a single room - me and Beavers. Sharan Yeni had a problem sleeping, but Natcho and Sharan were never talked about. Why this rule? You have two players who have 70 Performances and above, what bothers you that they sleep alone? To create equality? It's just playing a lion in the eggs, what are you trying to get a bite?".
Still in the Israeli national team
In the association, Milea Hus said goodbye: "Leaving a legacy that will help develop the industry"
Avat revealed: "Benyon was the one who introduced a policy of a room alone in the team"

Zehavi's words at the 'podium'
The Israeli striker went on to say about Hazan and Benion's decision regarding the team's sleeping procedures: "At least say, no one talked to me about it. If you see me as part of the team back, talk to me, tell me 'Eran, we want to do this and that, you Not with this summons, it's fine. In future summonses, it will be like this'. Beavers was talked to, but he was summoned. He agreed, I'm telling you from now on, there's no way I'll agree. It's not for nothing, it's not a principle - it's something professional and personal. It's my preparation For the game, it's my rest, the fact that I wake up earlier than them in the morning. I finish breakfast and only then do they wake up, I don't want to disturb anyone and that no one should disturb me."
"Beavers was talked to before, but he was summoned."

As I recall, Zahavi remained out of the national team after he did not agree to comply with the demands of the professional team led by Yossi Benyon to share a room with another player.
Zahavi relented and tried to offer a compromise to Benion, but the two did not reach an agreement and the Israeli striker will not return to the Israeli national team.
