Maccabi Netanya were surprised after Chen Ezra, who only underwent finger surgery on his hand last week and was supposed to return to training with contact only in a few days, held a full training session yesterday (Saturday). The midfielder, who is in a great season and has already scored four goals so far, wanted to be on the roster for tomorrow’s game against Kiryat Shmona. “It’s a bit of a risk,” they said in Netanya. “But he asks and we will have to make a decision together with him and the medical staff.”
In terms of diamonds, tomorrow’s win will widen the gap from northern rivals to five points, though Kobe Medicine’s team is three games short. Netanya will meet Kiryat Shmona after it has hardly trained full staff in recent times due to the number of Corona cases. However, Raymond Atfeld’s team has already faced a team in a similar situation, when they played against Betar Jerusalem on Thursday, but failed to take advantage of it and lost 2: 1.
“Betar also said that we got a rival in the invitation and in the end we lost, there are no rules,” said players in the team. Danny Amos and Shir Tzedek will return to the field where they took the championship, and tomorrow the whole team will go to a hotel It is that following the loss, the Dutch coach will make a number of changes in the squad, so it is not impossible that Zlatan Shachovic will return to 11 and possibly Ben Azoubel as well.
