The meaning of the goalkeeper's decision concerns not only the champion, as mentioned, but also the Israeli national team.

However, from an examination it became clear that his transfer to another league would, in the eyes of FIFA, invalidate the entire period he stayed in Israel and would definitively eliminate his chances of playing for the Israeli national team.
