Four days ago, Betar Jerusalem returned to the Premier League with a respectable victory over Maccabi Netanya, but tonight (Monday) it lost again and was defeated for the second time in its last three games in the league, after being defeated 3-0 by Maccabi Haifa at Teddy Stadium. Uriel Degani was sent off in direct red During the game due to a sharp tackle by Charon Sheri and Itamar Nitzan prevented a more difficult loss of the team from the capital, with a number of beautiful saves, but Betar surrendered to the Greens for the second time this season.
Coach Shai Barda Explained at the end of his team’s weak performance: “We may have come out cheap. We started the game with the energy and will of the players. We made a mistake that ended in our cooking, but it can happen in the game. Then we got to two more situations and in the second half the story is completely different. One of us does not know how to analyze it, I am the last to excuse and do not want to do it again this time, but in the half the players asked to leave because they are just finished and we have no strength to lift from the bench.Then it was 2: 0 “It’s the kind of games that we as coaches should try to erase because we have a super important game on Thursday. We will try to come up with 10 players a little less tired.”
More groups suffered from the corona: “We are in the Corona season and none of us know how to deal with it. We will have to play with fresher players. We will try to pick up the players, it is not easy but when talking about other teams, I do not want to excuse, but this team 10 days did not train and gave the All against Maccabi Netanya. We need to know how to lift ourselves, this is Betar Jerusalem, there is an audience that is supposed to return and as professionals this season is challenging us. This is a special and different season and only the one who knows how to get used to the situation will win. We’ll do everything and get out of it. No time for excuses and whining, do not like to be pitied. We will delete this game and try to change things that are wrong. “
Why Ohana played in the wing: “We wanted one more player to have a dribble, it was Michael or Padida. We decided we were going with a player we wanted to get into playing shape and we hardly enjoy it. That was our deliberation during the day.”
Itamar Nitzan, Who excelled and prevented a bigger defeat, concluded: “Unfortunately we lost and the better team won, but move on and we have a long way to go. We want to stick as much as possible to the top playoffs and get something out of this season. We tried to play football, made uncommitted mistakes and paid for it. I do not want to use excuses like Corona. “
On the spread of the virus in the group“I personally felt it was harder, I’m sure the players who are more mobile than me are more excited about it. We will not use that as an excuse because it will not interest anyone at the end of the season. We want to win every game and today we failed at it.”
How to lift the group: “We have no choice, this is the situation and we have to deal with it. We are facing the next game, we do not have much time to mourn. A battle against Sakhnin awaits us.”
