Vladimir Ivic, the Yellow & Blue Head Coach looked back at his side’s 4:0 victory over Hapoel Hadera on Matchday 7 of the Israel Premier League Ligat Japanika and began by discussing his club’s performance:

“I believe that we have had a number of good games, we played well but I’m sure we can play better. Our target is to be better and better.”

Difference from other matches:
“Our first half was the big difference. We scored the first goal and then the second and we had confidence. We controlled the game and we created chances. It was good that we scored 4 goals and we could have scored one or two more, but that’s ok.”

Is Maccabi the best team in the league?
“I don’t like to talk about the club and how we play. We have our target which is to play better and better.”

About not using Eliran Atar:
“We scored and we were in front so I thought differently as to what we needed.”

Continuing to improve:
“I don’t want them to play the same but better. They know what I’ve asked of them and we have a lot of work in front of us. We need to improve our game.”
