Recap: Villarreal vs Maccabi Haifa 0:0/Sport1
Against the backdrop of the great interest he has aroused in recent months overseas, Anan Halaili, today (Sunday), signed a new contract with Maccabi Haifa, until 2027. "It's the fulfillment of a childhood dream," said the talented winger, who previously had a release clause of €1.5 million in the summer of 2024. "As someone who lives in the Kiryat Eliezer neighborhood, a few minutes' walk from the stadium, I've been a diehard fan of the team all my life and for me this is home. I signed today with the biggest club in the country, I dream of taking a championship and raising a plate in front of our crazy crowd that we miss so much these days. Come on Maccabi, green is rising."
The club's professional director, Gal Alberman, said: "We are pleased to announce the extension of Anan Halaili's agreement. Annan, who grew up green, is proving maturity and is on an outstanding progress graph. We are convinced that many more moments of personal and group glory await Anan in the group. We wish Anan to continue his progress and enjoy moments of happiness and success together with the group. Good luck Annan!"
Club CEO Itzik Ovadia: "I am full of pride to see Anan Halaili's progress over the past 3.5 years, from a youth player in Maccabi Haifa to the senior team. Anan is a good example of a player who grew and developed in our youth department and became an adult player and a member of the Israeli national team. The signing of a long-term agreement is a very clear statement of the trust in Anan and the club's intention to retain and promote the talented players."

Halaili, 19, who grew up in the club's youth department, broke through last summer during the World Cup and the European Junior Team Championship. His wonderful ability also earned him a place in Masai's first team rotation, as well as a debut for the senior Israeli national team, in a 1:1 win against Switzerland.
