Eran Zehavi Silenced all his critics yesterday (Sunday) with A great pair in a PSV uniform. Eindhoven To the Ajax network in the game of the season in the Netherlands and reminded everyone, for the umpteenth time, why this is one of the biggest winners of Israeli football ever. Zehavi’s agent, Ronen Katsav, spoke today on the sports program of Radio 103FM and told what he went through in the last month, denied returning to Maccabi Tel Aviv and referred to Omar Atzili’s apparent move to Maccabi Haifa.
Listen to the full interview
Katsav opened his remarks and addressed Primo’s claim that Zahavi should leave the team: “I do not think that Moshe Primo is an objective factor in Eran Zehavi’s issues. If that is his opinion it is his right, maybe he holds less than Eran. This opinion is legitimate but I do not think a team is something that is built, these are just slogans and one big nonsense. “We build through the team, it should start with senior children’s coaches and not sports teachers. The team needs the best players at any given moment.”
What happened to Eran Zehavi last month in the Netherlands: “It’s very problematic for me that everyone referred to the Dutch media. Zehavi is his own biggest critic, the whole game he does not score he is disappointed with himself and that’s why he is such a winner. Regarding the Dutch media, all kinds of articles have been published and I have no problem with criticism, but me It’s very disturbing that they make a copy in the country for every reference from the Netherlands. One of the sites even quoted a boy and put it in the headline. People do not look at the picture correctly, you will understand what happened, a man moved from China in the middle of the season, was on the team “Normal and still we are talking about 11 games, five goals, three assists and brought them to Europe.”
There was some chance he would return to Israel in January: “I will say it like this, when Zahavi decided to move to PSV he wanted to feel what it was like to be in Europe. What logic is it that a player of this magnitude will come back so fast. “Two weeks in a row of rest and training and now we are examining it properly, it is easiest to return to Israel, but the experience is a real experience and this attempt will also fail.”
He must now succeed in Europe“From that must, the feeling was after all the years in China and the big money you can try in Europe. You have to remember when he went to Italy as a back-up midfielder and was not a striker until the age of 26.”
Up to what age does he want to play: “I told him to talk to me at 45 (laughs), but as long as he is healthy and feeling good he can play. A man has the madness to train, the man is unable to rest, he has a close coach, he is crazy.”
The return of Maccabi Tel Aviv is not on the agenda: “He did not leave the Netherlands to leave, forgetting that there is Eindhoven fighting for the championship. There is no offer and no negotiations.”
Let’s move on to Noble Omar, he closed with Maccabi Haifa: “It is unsigned and unfinished because it is unsigned. When we have something to declare we will do it.”
Why did you say he should not apologize?: “That’s my opinion. Everything has already happened, there are those who judge that it is wrong to return after half a year, innocent people can be exiled from the country. “The players have already been done and now they have to target a young company. There is the other side that lied, that a cheat was done to them. I see no reason for them to come and apologize to him.”
Does it make sense for Maccabi Tel Aviv to release Atzili and Maccabi Haifa to sign him?: “There is a big difference in things, one took out those who were suspicious and it is rare that the case was closed out of innocence. My players feel they were lied to.”
