Ben Bitton’s signing with Maccabi Tel Aviv surprised everyone, except for Ben Bitton. A midfielder who has been in BS for the past seven years, who was one of the team’s leaders, will wear yellow next season and this morning (Monday) the official farewell arrived.

“Seven seasons ago, I joined Hapoel B’Shlosha,” Bitton said in a post he wrote on his Instagram account. “We did not have pretensions then, we did not think about championships, I did not believe that was what would happen. All I wanted was to join the team. I once said at one of the press conferences, that in the future they will look at this team here in Be’er Sheva and understand we made history. We made history. ”

“Not only in the three championships, the two championships, the trophy, the Toto Cup and twice the home stage in Europe – but in the fact that we managed to sweep an entire city, the whole south – and when we played in Europe, we felt the whole country was with us. “A huge team, an organization that went together all the way, for better or worse.”

“Unfortunately, something has been biting us for the last two years, and I’m not talking about the professional side, because it can happen to any team,” the defender added. “Something in the connection between them all got a little lost, and I’m not the only one saying that. It hurts me most of all, because that connection was the thing that made us special. Sometime, maybe because I was sent to represent all the players, I felt like I was being shown the way out. The truth. “It hurt me, it still hurts me. I remained the oldest player in the club, the only remnant of the pre-championship period, and they just broadcast to me – ‘Mitzino’.”

“I choose not to slam the door, leave it open, because I always leave doors open – and move on to play in a new team, in a new challenge. As always I will give my all for the success of the team. Thank you BS, the city, the people, the fans, the team “The players, the management. It was a great time, I knew people and friends who will go with me for a lifetime. I choose to take all the good in it, say a big thank you and look at my next challenge. Whenever we meet I will come with a hug.”

7 seasons ago I joined Hapoel BS. We had no pretensions then, we did not think about championships, I did not believe that was what would happen. All I wanted was to get into the lineup. I once said at one of the press conferences that in the future they will look at this group that was here in Be’er Sheva and understand that we have made history. Today everyone knows it’s true, we made history. Not only in the three championships, two championships, the trophy, the Toto Cup and twice the home stage in Europe, but we managed to sweep an entire city with us, the whole south, and when we played in Europe, we felt the whole country was with us. It was an exciting, big time, with amazing players, a huge team, an organization that went together all the way, for better or worse. Unfortunately, something has bugged us in the last two years, and I’m not talking about the professional side, because it can happen to any team. Something in the connection between them all got a little lost, and I’m not the only one saying that, it hurts me most of all, because this connection was the thing that made us special. Sometime, I felt, maybe because I was sent to represent all the players, because they were showing me the way out. The truth? It hurts me, it hurts me. I remained the oldest player in the club, the only remnant of the pre-championship season, and they just broadcast to me: “We’ve done it.” I choose not to slam the door, leave it open, I always leave doors open, and move on to play in a new team, in a new challenge, and as always I will give my all for the success of the team. Thank you BS, the city, the people, the fans, the team, the players, the management. Thanks to my agent Gilad Katsav, for the help, support and listening. It was a tremendous time, I knew people and friends who would go with me for a lifetime. I choose to take all the good in her, say a big thank you and look at my next challenge. Whenever we meet I will come with a hug🙏

After the post, Bitton’s first interview was published on the official website of Maccabi Tel Aviv. There, he set about his next task: “I am very excited. I have been waiting for this for quite some time. For me, Maccabi is a huge club, with a tradition. I’m excited to meet the members and help the group. ” Later, he also referred to Maccabi’s mission – to win a third championship in a row. “In my experience, it is much harder to keep the title than to achieve it, probably in a third season. To do that you have to work hard, be focused and get to every game as if it is the last. I already felt the crowd in Bloomfield, I really want to be with them. The goal of all of us is to be healthy, and I hope that the audience will return as soon as possible and we will be able to achieve the goals. “
