Against the backdrop of the never-ending saga between Maccabi and Hapoel Tel Aviv in which the Yellows have not yet provided the quota of tickets to their sworn rival, former player Or Goren attacked Shimon Mizrahi's team on Tuesday in a scathing post on social media.
Goren is ranked fifth on the all-time scoring chart, with only Doron Jamchi, Mickey Berkowitz, Ofer Eshed and Bozi Yanai scoring more than him. He played for Givat/Yagur, Hapoel and Maccabi Ramat Gan, Hapoel Upper Galilee, Elitzur Netanya, Elitzur Neve-David Ramle, Beitar Tel Aviv and Maccabi Hadera.
Goren wrote: "To all those who are appalled by Maccabi Tel Aviv's behavior before the derby and their disregard for the rules of the administration, lol, you guys make me laugh. What is happening today in the public, in the media and even in the administration and the Basketball Association is a hundred times greater, actually a thousand times better, and the truth is a million times better than it was 40 years ago when Maccabi Tel Aviv was a team with a state."
"Generations of children grew up in the State of Israel brainwashed and fans of Maccabi Tel Aviv, which did almost everything illegal possible in order to win. Buying judges, observers, coaches, rabbis, police officers, disciplinary committees and much more.

"Defeating Maccabi Tel Aviv was impossible at the time, and the public atmosphere and the attitude against those who dared and tried (and occasionally succeeded) to beat Maccabi Tel Aviv was like a great Israel-hater. For those who are surprised today, it's only because things are starting to come out a bit."
