Maccabi Tel Aviv captain Sheran Yeini summed up his squad’s 3:0 victory win against Bnei Sakhnin on Matchday 9 of the Israel Premier League Ligat Japanika:

“I don’t think we are cruising. We are working very hard every match and we have to be careful from the other teams of they open it up and try to counter attack.”

Playing as a team, scoring and the Movember month:
“We play as a team and we are really playing together, supporting each other. It was fun to score and I did so when I played in Holland. We all have our mustaches as it’s November and it’s Movember to make people aware of Men’s health issues.”

Match by match and concentrating on themselves:
“Maccabi Tel Aviv always focusses on itself as we have done over the past number of years. That’s the best method for us. But no club takes a title at the start of the season. We want to be in the best position possible. Right now we have 23 points and we are just thinking about how we will get to 26 and we aren’t looking at any other clubs.”
