Not quiet at Hapoel Hadera. Following the defeat (3: 0) yesterday (Monday) to Bnei Sakhnin in the eighth round of the State Cup. Angry voices were heard last night in the locker room towards a large part of the team players about the poor ability they displayed during the game.
“It’s just a shameful ability and a lack of commitment on the part of the players. Let everyone understand that this will have consequences,” said a senior club official. The coach, Menachem Koretzky, intends to have a conversation with the players during which he will point out the mistakes made in the loss. Those expected to return to Koretzky’s squad on Saturday are defender Dia Lavidi and midfielder Muhammad Osman.
Sakhnin celebrates: “We missed the taste of victory”
After five games without a win – Bnei Sakhnin celebrated an impressive 0: 3 over Hadera and promotion to the eighth finals of the State Cup. “It can certainly give us a boost going forward. We missed the taste of victory, but if the momentum does not continue – it’s like we did nothing,” the club said.
In Sakhnin, the conqueror of the duo, Nigel Hasbeink, and the coach, Avitan, tried to emphasize the issue of the attack, which was recently anemic. Among other things, the coach summoned the attacking players to him for personal conversations in which he heard and voiced his demands.
The team will begin preparations for the league meeting against Hapoel Haifa, with the goal of getting out of the red line. In Sakhnin, it is hoped that Biram Kiel and Osama Khalila will be eligible.
