Danny Amos: “Netanya will not be in the top playoff”


The loss of Maccabi Netanya 1: 0 in the Toto Cup against Maccabi Petah Tikva and especially the lukewarm ability in that match, lit a red light regarding the readiness of Raymond Atfeld’s team for the league.

Tomorrow (Saturday) the Diamonds will meet Hapoel Hadera in their last game in the home stage of the Toto Cup. The chance to reach the factory final against Maccabi Tel Aviv does not exist for the team, the goal is to win in order to finish higher in the rankings, which will put more money in the club’s empty coffers.

On days when all the teams are cutting back and converting on young players, some of whom are anonymous, the senior staff players in Netanya will have to take on more. Apart from Almog Cohen and Chen Ezra, the other responsible adult is Danny Amos, Who had a very good season last season, when he kept a clean sheet 13 times.

“We have a very young team and we are in the middle of a process that I think will succeed. At the moment we are still learning from each other, we will improve and learn,” the goalkeeper told the sports channel.

Amos commented on the process the team is going through, which parted ways with coaches Slobodan Drapic and Shai Barda after a long period: “The Maccabi Netanya system has time and patience and did not just bring this coach (Atfeld). “.

As mentioned, quite a bit of responsibility rests on Amos this season, Amos also talked about this: “Part of being an adult in a young team is teaching and talking, but young people also have a responsibility, we need to grow up fast in a team like this, only together can we have a good season.”

The goalkeeper described how he sees the team’s goals for the season he started, when the ambitions at this stage are quite connected to reality: “Last year a lot of money was invested here and we were not in the top playoff. This year there is a low budget, but I believe in players here and team. “Probably, but it is important to have a good process and see quality football from Maccabi Netanya. The results will come slowly.”

After the end of the season, Amos had several offers both in the local league and overseas, but finally chose to stay in the team he joined in the summer of 2017: “There were opportunities to leave and talk but I really like the club, it’s hot and I like the crowd here. “The club is going and it really interested me. I wanted to be a part of it and I’m glad I stayed. We are being torn apart in training but we are happy and happy about it.”
