The Premier League will return to action this coming weekend with a big game in the top playoffs: Maccabi Haifa will host Hapoel Beer Sheva on Saturday (20:00), with their victory increasing the gap at the top of the table to seven points and bringing them very close to a third championship in a row.
Today the team held a press conference, against the background of the incessant rumors about a possible move of Barak Becher to Red Star Belgrade.

Barak Becher opened with the reports about the signing as a coach at Red Star Belgrade: "I understand that it is preoccupying the media and that is natural. We made an amazing achievement in qualifying for the Champions League. There were offers for me and the players. There were in the past and there are today. There is an agent who deals with this, and there is me who deals with the success of Maccabi Haifa. I just want to point out that everything that was and will be updated with Yaakov Shahar, that's how I close this story, because on Saturday there is an important game. The most important thing for me is to make the crowd proud, to enjoy football. Nothing else is interesting."
The coach was also asked how his players reacted to the announcements about his candidacy for the Red Star: "I haven't talked to everyone yet because not everyone has arrived, there are players who are still on their way back from the national team matches and then I will talk to them about the situation in the most truthful way. We don't hide the situation."
Towards Hapoel Beer Sheva: "I aim to win this season's game and lead Maccabi Haifa to a third championship. It belongs to the fans and they should stop messing with me. Even if we win on Saturday, and that is the ambition, there are still enough games left, and difficult games, so nothing will be closed, but It's clear that a win will give us a huge boost to continue. In the previous game against us in Haifa, they were better and we know that such ability will not be enough again. A win is important, but it's just as important that we do what we did in the last few games - I feel that the players are returning to the sharpness and madness they were."
The many players who have just returned from the national team matches: "We will wait for everyone to arrive to talk to them and check them, each player has to tell us if he feels 100 percent and I like that players tell the truth. Ali is already training normally and everything is fine, after the next two training sessions we will be smarter about others".

"We need to win this game together, as a team. We don't prepare differently because of Beer Sheva's aggressive style of play. We don't talk about such things in training. We weren't good two months ago, and today we are in a better place. We hope to give a good performance in an important game."
