Dor Micha, the Maccabi Tel Aviv midfielder looked back at his squad’s 1:0 victory against Bnei Yehuda to win the Champions Cup thanks to a goal by Aaron Schoenfeld. Micha also spoke about the Champions League qualifier against Cluj later this week:

“We’ll take the title but most importantly we need to get into match shape at this stage of the season. We have a few more days to prepare and it’s very important that we look good and play well.”

Closing a circle with Bnei Yehuda:
“This is actually closing a circle for the last time we lost the Champions Cup. I’m happy that today, which wasn’t a great game by us we knew how to win. This will give us energy to go forward.”

About the Champions League qualifier:
“We had two very intensive training camps and we worked very hard to prepare for the season. We know what we are heading into. This will be a totally different type of match from the Champions Cup and we have to look much better.”

Goals in Europe:
“I never go into a competition with the goal to lose and our goal is the Champions League. We really want to be there, it’s a dream and I know how much fun it is. We will give it our all and that is what we are going to work on.”

The upcoming season:
“In order for that to happen we have to be much better than last season. Our competition will be much better and it will be much harder. We will have to move up a gear.”

Personal goals ahead:
“I hope to have an even better season. I worked hard and I’m waiting to get going.”
