Maccabi Tel Aviv returned from Sammy Ofer stadium tonight disappointed after dropping two points which could prove crucial in the race for the league title having conceding a 93rd minute equaliser.
Coach Vladimir Ivic summed up the game in the end and said: “We deserved more than a point. We were the better team. We missed chances in the first half and the second half. In the end they scored a goal from one chance but this is football, you must play until the final second”.
Ivic continued: “We can’t afford to let our opponents score in the final second of the game. We must analyse the game and learn where we went wrong and move on to our next game. We scored one goal and created more chances to score the second and finish off the game. In the last minute we didn’t play smart and this is why the scored the equaliser. We didn’t play smart in all the positions”.
On the transfer window which ended without a signing, Ivic said: “We tried to sign more players in the transfer window but in the end we kept the current squad. We have a good squad of players and believe in them”.
