Vladimir Ivic, the Maccabi Tel Aviv Head Coach looked back at his side’s 2:0 victory over Hapoel Raanana at the Ramat Gan Stadium and talked about if getting the players to focus after a big week of three wins was more of a physical or mental challenge:

איביץ’ לאחר הניצחון על רעננה

“Mentally, because had 3 tough games before this one and now we had another tough game. They played one day after us and we have a bigger squad. We played to take three points and win the game.”

The season so far:
“They can celebrate after the win but the next day we start to prepare for the next game. We all know our job and what is expected until the end of the season which will be tough and difficult. We won because we played organized and strong and the players have given 100%. That’s how we want to play in the future.”

Hard work:
“Our target is to have all of our players ready for every game especially with 3 games per week like last week. We have to use them and it’s good when we have 18-20 players and we have to keep the positive energy with the team. With hard work they can keep playing and be in the first 11.”

Upcoming transfer window:
“We organize every window more than 3-4 months beforehand and we all know what we want. But we will see if we will make a move.”
