Shock in Beitar Jerusalem. After tonight’s game (Saturday) against MS Ashdod, in which the team lost 2: 0 to the club from the port, the team’s coaches, Slobodan Drapic and Shai Barda, decided to end their role and informed owner Moshe Hogg of their resignation.

After receiving the message, he said Moshe is celebrating: ‘This is a pair of excellent coaches who are also people above all. I love them, respect them, and appreciate all their goodwill and great investment. I really wanted them to succeed but unfortunately we failed in our goals this season. I thank them for their experience and wish them success in the future. ‘

Slobodan Drapic He said: “We went through a season with big upheavals, and unfortunately we were not able to get the players to what we expected. I wish the team success in the future and I am sure that both the club and we will know better days than these. “

Shai Barda He added: ‘We came here with a lot of motivation and a desire to succeed, but sometimes things don’t work out. We love Beitar and hope for success along the way. ”

The duo, who also stood on Betar Jerusalem’s lines in the 2015/16 season, returned last September for a second term in the team from the capital in place of Roni Levy, who was fired, but the two coaches failed to lead the yellow-blacks to places that owner Moshe is celebrating.
