Lito Vidigal, the Yellow & Blue boss spoke to the media following his side’s 2:0 win over Bnei Yehuda. The Angolan talked about the Israeli league, the Starting XI and the game itself:

“It was a tough game against a very good team with good organization who defended deeper. It was hard to find the space but we scored two goals and we had a chance for others, but most importantly we took the win and the three points. The players played with passion and with soul and took the three points.”

Working as a team:

“We worked as a team today and sometimes some players show quality, but when we play like a team, it makes it easier for us to win games.”

Creating chances:

“Maybe, but we had the chances and Vidar perhaps didn’t have the chances but other players did. Again most importantly we played as a team. When we play together, fight together and work together as a team then we play well.”

The same Starting XI every match?

“Of course not. We work every week and we then make choices. If we choose these players it’s because they showed the in the training session that they deserved to play and they may have been bette that others. I believe in all of the players.”

Late substitutions:

“Maybe I chose the right moment because we ended up scoring.”

Fighting together:

“We have to work and fight to win our games, that’s what is most important. We have to always focus on the next game. But most importantly was our supporters. They helped us a lot to win this game. I have to say congratulating to Bnei Yehuda and their coach, we may have won but they made us suffer a little.”

About the Israeli league:

“I think it’s a very good league and a difficult one. I like the football here and I’m learning about the teams and coaches. I know I’ve only been here for a little bit, but this is Maccabi and we to win every game.”
