Eitan Tibi also spoke about staying with the Yellow & Blue:

“I really wanted to continue with the Club and I got along very well with the fans. Over the course of the past four years we were able to do incredible things, win a bunch of titles and I believe that we will continue down the same path. I’m happy to continue with Maccabi.”

Expectations for the new season:

“My desire is stronger than ever especially after last season and I want to make sure we win back what is rightfully ours.”

Thanking the supporters:
