Peter Bosz, the Yellow-and-Blue boss discussed the upcoming Matchday 34 clash against Hapoel Raanana Monday evening at the Netanya Stadium, 20:55. With just three matches remaining and behind first place Hapoel Beer Sheva by 3-points, Maccabi will be looking to pick up the victory after three straight 0:0 draws:

בוס וריקן לקראת הפועל רעננה

“We will have 11 players, and we do have some injuries. Orlando won’t be available for tomorrow’s game and we also have 2 suspended players. I asked all of my players to focus only on football for the next 16 days. We have to win 3 games and we also have to see what Beer Sheva is doing as we don’t hold our own destiny in our hands.”

Disappointment after the Beer Sheva match:

“Before the match I said that only a win will help us. We were all disappointed with the draw, partly with the result and partly with the chances we couldn’t finish. You can imagine how disappointed they were after not winning and I showed them some clips of where they can do better.”

The match against Raanana:

“I don’t only think we can win it but we’ve proved that we can win. All we can do is win our games and then look at what Beer Sheva does.”

Switching focus:

“As a player I know what it’s like to be disappointed after a game. We had to make sure we switch our focus quickly. There may be other things on their mind as well but we have 16 days and we have to focus.”

His future:

“If I ask my players to focus on the games at hand, then I must set the right example. This is the only thing on my mind and nothing else.”
