Shlomi Harush (Itzik Belnitsky)
Hapoel Holon captain Shlomi Harush has been released from the team following an exit clause in his contract that allowed both parties to withdraw from the agreement for the 2020/21 season.
In Holon, it was stated: “We thank Shlomi for his years of contribution and achievements and wish him great success along the way. There is no doubt that Shlomi has played a significant part in the club’s success in recent years and his return to the top of Israeli basketball.”
Chairman of the Club, Ethan Lanciano, Added: “After many years it was decided to say goodbye to our captain with a heavy heart, Holon is known as someone who respects its symbols and always knew how to respect them and Shlomi was indeed a symbol who was part of the club for 9 years. Unfortunately we are in a period where some things do not work out as usual, there are quite a few reasons between the given situation of the club in particular and basketball in general. Needless to say, my personal love for Shlomi and certainly the appreciation of the audience and the system over the years. I want to wish Shlomi a lot of success in my name and on behalf of all the fans and I have no doubt that our paths will cross later, thank you Captain. “
