Eyal Golasa, the Yellow & Blue midfielder started the last two matches and looks to be an important piece of the puzzle as the club heads into Matchday 30. Number 23 spoke about getting the Starting nod against Jerusalem in the State Cup, Beer Sheva and returning to the pitch:

“I’ll play wherever they ask me to whether it’s 50/50 or at defensive midfielder which is a bit new for me. As long as I can help the team I don’t care where I play.

On his injury:

“I had a rough injury in my foot. But I’m the type of player where if I have to play hard and stick my foot in and it breaks, that’s the way I have to play.


“Of course, we believe that we can still win the title and you also saw that when we played Maccabi Haifa. We have to keep up this way and anything will be possible.”

Focusing on Beer Sheva:

“If we look at Beer Sheva it will just bother us, so we have to keep working hard ourselves and see where we end up. We don’t watch every game that they play but every team that plays us plays very hard and gives over 100% against us.”

Finding out when he would be in the Starting XI against Beitar:

“I found out in the hotel before the game. I was a bit surprised but I prepared well and we played well.”

Season of missed opportunities?

“Of course we feel that we missed an opportunity, but if we look back we will just get frustrated. Right now we are playing well and we hope that we can keep it up.”

Summing up the season:

“It’s still early to say if it will be painful or not but we have to keep playing hard to win games and pick up points. After the season we can see where we stand.”

The Israel National Team:

“I always enjoy being in the National Team and representing country. There is no bigger honor.”
