Maccabi Tel Aviv Captain Sheran Yeini and Vidar Kjartansson took time out from their preparations for their match against Kiryat Shemona this Saturday night for a special event at the Official Store at Cinema City Rishon Le’Zion. The pair met with the fans, took pictures and signed autographs on Official Club jerseys.
Yeini: “Vidigal brings plenty of passion to the game”
But Kjartansson’s Special Limited Edition Jersey with his goal celebration printed on the back was the show stopper. The jersey was the most popular item with the fans who purchased tons of Yellow & Blue products.

Kjartansson spoke about the reason behind the celebration: “Some friends gave me the idea for the celebration and they said that I should do it. When you score and the adrenaline is pumping sometimes it’s hard to think. I believe that the jersey is terrific.”
On the new Head Coach Lito Vidigal: “He came from Portugal. He’s done some great things. His club was successful and I hope that will be the same case here. We’re in good shape and we have to continue this way and also improve our play.”
Even Yeini was asked about the new Vidar jersey and that he should find a celebration of his own: “First of all I’ve got to score as many goals as Vidar has. Besides that, I don’t have any celebration but if I do score then maybe I’ll have to think of something.”
On returning to the Club:
“It’s really great to be back especially to a team that I know like Maccabi Tel Aviv. I really enjoy being here, it’s fun to return and I think I made a good decision.”
On the new Coach Lito Vidigal:
“He hasn’t been with us for too long but you can see that he is a coach that brings plenty of passion to the game. Vidigal wants us to be aggressive, that we should win and go all out and that’s something I like.”
About the Kiryat Shemona match:
“It’s a very difficult match and we always have a tough time against them. We have to prepare very well because Kiryat Shemona is a team that counter attacks very well and they have a good offense, so we must come into the contest ready to go.”
The competition for a spot in the midfield:
“I think we have competition for all of the positions on the pitch, not just in the midfield and that’s good for the squad. Me? I’ll be happy wherever they use me, I just want to play as much as possible and help the Club.”
