Maccabi Tel Aviv continue to train at their camp in Austria, Spanish defender "Mane" joins the rest of the squad for his first practice
After losing 1-0 in a pre-season friendly against Russian side FC Krasnodar, the Maccabi Tel Aviv squad returned to their training camp for a day that included a double practice. The Spanish defender Mane (Jose Manuel Jimenez Ortiz) had his first training session with Maccabi this morning after passing his medical in mid-week. Tomorrow Maccabi will play their last pre-season friendly in Austria at the home venue of FC Liefering from the second tier of the Austrian Football League. The contest was intended against German side Energy Cottbus but that match was cancelled following information received by the Austrian authorities that a group of hooligans were organising themselves to attend the match. All updates from the match will appear on the official Maccabi Tel Aviv website and on the Maccabi Tel Aviv social networks.
In another development, Maccabi Tel Aviv FC have announced that the club will be playing all this season's home games at Bloomfield Stadium. In accordance season ticket holders will receive preference in acquiring tickets for matches in European competitions.
