In the shadow of the government’s imminent decision to return the Premier League on Saturday, Maccabi Tel Aviv continues to prepare as usual for the away game against Maccabi Netanya on Saturday, and the season game against Maccabi Haifa next Wednesday in Bloomfield. After a stormy week around Itai Schechter, the striker’s pressure threshold seems to have dropped, and he is in no hurry to leave Kiryat Shalom. Schechter is waiting to see how many minutes a game he will get, if any, in the next two games, and then he will make a decision.
As is well known, the veteran striker has been pushed to the edge of the bench this season, and in light of the fact that his contract expires at the end of the season, Schechter does not want to continue to ‘spend’ the last seasons of his career heating the bench. His agent, Avi Nemani, and his associates recommended that he leave, but the striker, who is courting Maccabi Netanya and Betar Jerusalem, believes he can still change the situation, and hopes to do so before the transfer window closes.
Also in the transfer window of the Yellows: Nick Blackman, who also ends his contract at the end of the season, received several inquiries from teams in the Premier League, including city rival, Hapoel Tel Aviv, but rejected the possibility of leaving for another club in Israel this season. When a return to Europe is also on the agenda. Like Schechter, the club’s captains currently tend not to extend the striker’s contract. The professional team is still debating when it comes to lending a contractor, who desperately needs minutes of play. The club are still working to strengthen the attacking player until the end of the window, after the return of Geralds.
On another issue, the Serbian midfielder, Orosh Nikolic, returned from Belgrade this week for one of the long treatments at his home in Belgrade, and is conducting personal training without his teammates at the team’s training complex. The decision to return to regular training will be made by the club’s medical team together with the team’s coach after examining his condition in depth. Officials on Maccabi Tel Aviv’s medical team previously described Nikolic’s injury as one of the most complex he saw in his career. 2019, recorded only two appearances in the yellow uniform.
Last season’s player, Dan Glazer, is recovering from an abdominal muscle injury and is doing fitness and running training, still separate from his teammates. Apparently, Van Leven’s ax will miss the game against Maccabi Netanya and the professional team is making great efforts to prepare him for the game this season. Maor Kandil returned to training as usual and looked in excellent shape in training.
