Eran Zahavi: "This season is a failure. There is truth in what Karanka said" - voila! sport


Eran Zahavi knows what Maccabi Tel Aviv achieved with the victory in Turner ("to restore the power of deterrence"), thinks about the trophy, and tries to explain what is behind his coach's statement

Summary of the dramatic victory of Maccabi Tel Aviv 1:2 over Hapoel Beer Sheva in Turner (Sport 1)

Eran Zahavi would have gone into the second holiday of Passover upset and nervous tonight, if last night's game had ended in a draw and Maccabi Tel Aviv would not have beaten Hapoel Beer Sheva (1:2).

He would take his miss with him, as he punched out a great ball set up for him by Djorja Jovanovic in the second half.

But the game ended differently and after he scored the penalty, you could see that his celebration in front of the crowd that went south to Be'er Sheva, was from the heart and with all the emotions.

"We came to Be'er Sheva to win because we want to at least finish ahead of Hapoel Be'er Sheva," he said at the press conference after the game.

"What will happen next, who knows, but right now the goal was to win in order to pass Beer Sheva and I hope we do that in the future. We currently have to look from game to game. Beyond that, things do not depend on us. We know that if we score more points in the top playoffs we can regain the power of deterrence ours and we will come with good energy for the next season."

- What do you need to do to make more points?

"To do our best in every practice and in every game of course. This season is a big miss for us. We scored the most goals. We conceded the fewest goals and we are still ten points behind the first place. We lost so many points that are not the commitment of reality and it's a shame."

- This is your first league goal in Turner.

"True, but on the other hand, I broke the team's goal scoring record here. I really like playing in Turner."

- You are probably also thinking about the trophy.

"Unequivocally. You can't fake it and in the end pick ourselves up just for the cup. We have to give everything at every moment so that we can come to the cup and qualify for the final."

"There is truth in his words."

- Itor Karanka said that Maccabi Haifa is winning even though it is not doing anything on the field.

Do you think they don't deserve the top spot?

"I think he said that they didn't do great things against the big teams and yet they won. If I look at our games against them and their games against Hapoel Beer Sheva, then there is truth in the coach's words. I am not interested in Maccabi Haifa, but only Maccabi Tel Aviv ".

- Do you think the level in the league this season was high?

"I think the three majors are having an excellent season. Maccabi Haifa played in the Champions League. If the league was this easy, the majors wouldn't lose any points at all."
