“After a dispute between the union and Katsch and after the girls were reached, the national team coach withdrew the lawsuit he filed in court against the basketball union for expelling him to the Khalat,” the union said. The Basketball Association and Oded Katash would like to thank the acting chairman of the Basketball Association, Shimon Mizrahi, who helped bridge the parties in favor of the Israeli team. ”
Katsch’s lawyer, Dafna Shmuelevich, contacted Shimon Mizrahi earlier this week after it became known that the coach had been summoned to a pre-dismissal hearing and the chairman of Maccabi Tel Aviv began the process of compromise between the parties. The basketball association did not want to appoint an alternative coach in place of Katsch in advance, for reasons of saving money, and when Katsch agreed to withdraw the lawsuit against the union, it was decided that he would end the qualifying campaign.
