“We want the Galilee view in the quarter-finals of the State Cup.” Maccabi Netanya are happy

Maccabi Netanya went through a difficult period and despite games in which it was better than its opponent, it completed six games without a win. Yesterday (Tuesday), Guy Sarfati’s team needed extra time against Hapoel Jerusalem, but advanced a step in the cup to the top eight in the hope that the 1:2 victory over Hapoel Jerusalem will add to the confidence of the players and change the momentum for the continuation of the league struggles, “confidence is back,” said the club.

At the end of the game, the players were asked to choose who they would like to meet in the next stage in the lottery that will take place tomorrow. Some of the players chose the cliché that “whoever comes, welcome,” but there were also those who named Hapoel Nof HaGilil.

“After a season like this we want to reach the last four in the cup first of all,” said the club, “we have been to this event three times in the last ten years and it is a great feeling and even more important for our audience.”

Coach Guy Sarfati will try to strengthen the players for the critical match in the league against MS Ashdod. A win will keep the Diamonds away from the bottom while a draw and of course a loss will lead to Tania already being a candidate for relegation.

The one who was not in the squad yesterday is Stanislav Blinky. A Frenchman did not like the striker’s attitude in the last week and even though he is one of the senior players in the team, the message is clear, “He who does not run and invest, will not get minutes, names will not be played for him”, they said in the team.

Joel Abu Hana, who returned to training, will be fit to play in Ashdod. Regarding Eitan Azoulai, a final decision will be made tomorrow whether to include him in the squad already or in the next game against Hapoel Hadera.
