What club did Maharan Radi support as a kid? And what is Ignacio Fideleleff's nickname? Answers to these questions and much more in the Tel Aviv Derby match programme
"When I was a kid I never went to any matches. I played a lot of football but I never went to see a match. I don't really like to watch matches. The first time I ever went to a match was actually quite recently, the National Cup final in 2006 between Hapoel Tel Aviv and Bnei Yehuda", says Maccabi Tel Aviv and Israel midfielder Maharan Radi in the match programme for the upcoming home derby against Hapoel Tel Aviv. "I've always been a Maccabi Tel Aviv fan. My brothers on the other hand are dyed-in-the-wool Maccabi Haifa fans, and in the 1994/95 season, when the rivalry between the two clubs got tempers flaring inside our house, my brothers would really pounce on me. But don't worry, I could give as good as I got."
