The Hapoel Be’er Sheva star may leave: “Only then will they understand what kind of player was here”

After two league games without a win, which kept them away from the championship fight, Hapoel Beer Sheva collected 3 points last night (Monday) in a victory over Beitar Jerusalem (0:1) and it is possible that they will still be able to tail the two nominations for the crown. For this, Hapoel Beer Sheva knows, They will have to go to Haifa in the next round and beat Hapoel Haifa, the team that is currently fighting with them for the bronze medal this season.

Eliniv Barda said after the narrow victory over Urban Tiberias in the State Cup six days ago that “with such ability we will not be able to beat Beitar Jerusalem”. In practice, Hapoel Beer Sheva played less well last night than against Tiberias but took the points. Barda was far away last night From being critical of his players. Coaches tend to look for the negative, when they take the points and stand for the mistakes, when they have another victory in the pot.

Barda chose last night to praise his players, strengthen them and say how much he appreciates the victory achieved thanks to the character and sacrifice of players, especially those from the back line. In the absence of Miguel Vitor, it was Mariano Barreiro and Eitan Tibi who helped Niv Eliassi to keep a clean sheet and on the sides, the defensive side Ayad Abu Abid and Helder Lopes did their part. The Portuguese scored the winning goal with a shot after a perfect stationary ball by Roy Gordana. Breda wants Lopes for another season, but it is doubtful if he will stay, due to his advanced age and the fact that he does not live in Israel with his family. “Only after Lopes leaves, will they understand what kind of player was here,” Hapoel Be’er Sheva said last night. “Lopes missed our championship years. This is a shield that was sewn on the championships we took here.”

Aden Shamir finished yesterday already at halftime when he asked for a substitute after feeling the hamstring muscle and is very doubtful for the next game. The one who may surprise and return to practice this weekend is Miguel Vitor, but in any case he will most likely not be eligible for Hapoel Haifa. Rotem Hatuel surprised yesterday, when he got dressed and even played for a few minutes. Hatuel asked yesterday morning to conduct a competency test and after passing it, Berda decided to dress him.
