Michael Zandberg, the coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv said after the draw: “It was very difficult to play today, the conditions did not allow it, neither the pitch nor the wind.” I leave the game with mixed feelings: on the one hand, we didn’t concede a third game in a row, which is very important, but on the other hand, we didn’t create enough chances. We faced a very physical team and we are a young team, because two players from 2007 played at the end. There are things to correct both in terms of football and in terms of decision-making.’

On the load this week: “It has a great impact because we have a short roster of injured and suspended players. In the youth group, this burden is a kind of struggle, we see it in the adults as well. The cup game in the middle of the week? I have said several times that the results in the youth department are less important, but more the development of the players. When you reach the quarter-finals, obviously you want to go as far as possible. We have a difficult hurdle, as far as I’m concerned, it’s another fight and a game. The feeling of victory is for the players.’

on the other hand, Dan Roman And Maccabi Netanya interrupted two consecutive losses: “All in all, we are happy that we kept a clean sheet and that was important to us. We are in a time when things come less easily and there are times like that. I still think the quality of our game is good and we still want to raise it and improve it. Today was a first step towards that and I am proud of the players, because even with a numerical disadvantage we continued to play our game and press. They were brave and deserve all the respect.’

Regarding whether he feels missed: “I don’t know how to define it. We hoped it would go our way, it didn’t and sometimes things depend a bit on luck. The state of the pitch? You’ve seen the game, it makes it very difficult to play the game we want. It also affects the technical quality, but it is what it is and some players are going to meet pitches like this in their next move. In football you have to play in changing conditions. Sometimes wind, rain, rain or there is no grass at all. This is the game and you have to always adapt and get the most out of it. My next step is to finish the interview, go and be with the kids. To come to training tomorrow morning and be 100 percent focused on Maccabi Netanya.’

Maccabi Petah Tikva – Bnei Sakhnin 0:0

The leader also wanted a victory, which in her case would have given her another jumpstart on the way to the championship which already looks quite certain, but here too the game ended in a draw and both teams would settle for a point. Sakhnin lost third place to Hapoel Tel Aviv. Petah Tikva nevertheless increased the gap from 2nd place thanks to the loss of Maccabi Haifa on the way to a second championship in its history.
