Maccabi Tel Aviv's newly acquired Swedish striker, Rade Prica, is still getting used to life in Tel Aviv, missing his children but quietly celebrating his maiden goal in the Derby. An exclusive interview.

Now that all the golden haired volunteers have left the kibbutzes and returned to their native Scandinavia, it's the turn of Maccabi Tel Aviv striker Rade Prica to become Israel's most illustrious import from the lands of the midnight sun. It took him only five league games and one cup tie to find the net for the first time in a yellow Maccabi Tel Aviv jersey, and that after having already registered two assists in the two home matches that preceded the Tel Aviv Derby. Very few foreign strikers have ever succeeded in leaving their mark during their Maccabi playing careers, but much like in the case of Rade Prica the common denominator between them has been similar – they fit in quickly and score in the Derby. Rodrigo Goldberg did it five times, Andrzej Kubica just once, but in both cases they quickly found a place in the hearts of their adoring Maccabi Tel Aviv fans. Now it's the turn of Rade Prica to conquer the city and who knows, win a championship into the bargain. Have a look at the video interview.
