Precisely after defeating Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Beer Sheva, Ran Ben Shimon’s trainees got stuck tonight (Saturday) against Bnei Sakhnin and finished with a disappointing 0-0. Despite the draw, the Southerners are currently in third place. Nisso Avitan’s players, on the other hand, stopped the snowball from the three consecutive losses and managed to at least temporarily rise above the red line.
Avitan spoke at the end and referred to the ability of his trainees: “I think I saw a fighting team, committed, who really wants to win. A team that knows how to stand tactically, that has a quality team in its house. Overall we lacked a finishing leg. We have difficulty up front, and I believe it’s a matter of confidence and momentum. “.
The storm with the group’s chairman Muhammad Abu Yunis: “The relationship between me and him was excellent, really. With all the guys in Sakhnin the relationship was great. He (Abu Yunis) had an outburst, which in my eyes is out of place and not respectful. I did not meet him until last Friday. The first thing he did was hug me. If he wanted to fire, he would have done it already, but I’m here, committed to the club and to them along with the players.I’m connected to them and feel connected to me.
Did he have thoughts of resigning: “There are always thoughts. I have already said, I do not sweep things. He said serious things. There was a moment of anger and loss of control that hurt us all. But again, everyone here is committed. It is a respectable club that should represent the sector in the Premier League and that is my job. This is with the team, and it is very important that we bring the three points against Betar Jerusalem. “
also Biram Kiel Commenting on the stormy week at the club this week: “I also told the players, I think all the pressure that comes from Bnei Sakhnin is from love, and sometimes out of love they make mistakes. I talk about everyone. Both the management, the professional team and the audience.”
On the other hand, Ran Ben Shimon, Ashdod coach, talked about losing points precisely after two big victories against Maccabi Haifa and BS: “It was not clear? When we play against a team that is fighting for its life, we need different thinking, different tools. There was an exceptional attitude from the players who moved the ball. “
On this week’s trade between Ramzi Spori and Sagiv Yehezkel: “Everything that happens at the club I am in favor of. It was a slightly more complex situation than people think in this case. We set ourselves as part of our philosophy that only players who want to play will be with us.”
Goals for the rest of the season: “We have a great squad that can do beautiful things. We aim high. The only goal stated is to reach the top playoffs. That’s the only goal. When we get there, ask me what the next goal is and I will give a different answer.”
Roy Gordana, Who had to take on more due to the absence of Shlomi Azulai, concluded: “We are never happy with his draw. The game was very difficult. Sakhnin is a very disciplined team. It is difficult to break them. On the other hand, I am glad we kept the 0-0 because we lost games “In the past, and it shows improvement. This game is not a bad result.”
