A surprising shock in Hapoel Kfar Saba. Coach Ophir Haim was fired on Tuesday (Tuesday) and his replacement will be Amir Turgman, who opened the season in Ness Ziona. This is just four days before the team’s season play against Hapoel Raanana.
The background to Haim’s surprising departure is a difficult conversation that took place during the day with Yitzhak Garim, the group’s owners, in which there were unbridgeable disagreements, and it was clear that the relationship between the parties had come to a halt. In Kfar Saba, they wasted no time and were quick to appoint a replacement. Remember, only recently has he been given compliments after victories over Maccabi Haifa and Beitar Jerusalem. His departure proves once again how drained the status of Israeli football coach is.
Schechter will be gone for about three weeks
Maccabi Tel Aviv striker Itai Schechter suffers from groin tightness and is expected to be absent from the field for about three weeks. Recall that Schechter was injured in the derby game yesterday following the dangerous entrance of Shay Eisen, which cost the red-hot midfielder and rescue Maccabi immediately. Schechter underwent an ultrasound test to determine that the groin was stretched. As for his replacement, Chico Opuado, who was also injured near the finish and heading off the field on a stretcher, the striker is expected to undergo an MRI to find out the severity of the injury.
