Bitton, who successfully passed medical tests at the club and will wear the Maccabi No. 2 shirt, told the official website after the signing: “I am happy to join Maccabi Tel Aviv and experience the strengths of this great club. As someone who has previously won the championship, I know it is harder to keep it now We will aim as high as possible in order to record as many achievements as possible in the Maccabi uniform. ” Deputy CEO Sharon Tamam said: “We are happy to add Ben to the team and are confident that he will contribute a lot to us in the near and distant future on the way to achieving all of our goals. Welcome son and good luck. ”
The 29-year-old Bitton played in the youth of Hapoel Tel Aviv and also went up there for the seniors, but did not get to play there. He was loaned to the Ness Ziona section for two seasons and one season to Hapoel Nazareth Illit and in 2013 he moved to Hapoel Beer Sheva, with which he won three championships, twice in the Champions League, once in the Toto Cup and a few weeks ago also in the Cup. He scored two goals in the Hapoel Beer Sheva uniform over the years.
