Lito Vidigal, the Maccabi Tel Aviv Head Coach looked back at his side’s 1:0 defeat at the hands of Hapoel Beer Sheva at Turner Stadium on Matchday 28 of the Ligat Ha’Al Championship Playoffs and said that the league is not over just yet:

Vidigal: “We have to continue to work hard and keep fighting”

“No, we never think like this. We have to continue to work hard and keep fighting. This is what I said to the players in the dressing room. We are fighting every game to win.

Closing the gap:

“It’s very difficult now and it had been 11 points but we cut down the gap. We will have to work hard to take victories and cut the gap down again. We will never give up.”

Starting Scarione instead of Itzhaki:

“We have a lot of players and they are all important and I believe in all of them. The most important thing is the team and to play like a team and we worked hard as a team. We may have not scored but we had chances and we will now turn our attention to the next match.”
