Betar Jerusalem coach Erwin Koeman will land in Israel on Thursday with the aim of increasing the pace of preparations for next season and will meet with Eli Ohana regarding procurement matters. The club is still in turmoil as a result of recent developments regarding the economic situation, with the youth department, where they expected a recovery process after last season, fearing that the cuts will continue.
After the waiver of Idan Vered and Eliran Atar (Hapoel Tel Aviv, Hapoel Haifa and Bnei Yehuda are interested in the striker) and the sale of Ali Muhammad, the club is considering selling another player. Contacts in recent days for signing players have been delayed due to Eli Ohana’s attempt to meet the budget allocated to him. Negotiations with these generation are progressing, but both sides have not yet agreed to be flexible due to small gaps. “According to the conduct, you understand that you are in trouble. If they were not able to sign these in a few days, and that is after they released and sold players here, how will they bring in senior players?” And next week will prove whether the owner is able to sign it.
Betar will not rule out the possibility of selling one of the attacking players, such as Matosinio, Michael Ohana or Yarden Shoa, to fund reinforcements. You are on your way to Belgium, but Betar is demanding over a million euros for him. Meanwhile, the club is pressuring Oren Bitton to leave for Hapoel Beer Sheva or another team, in order to get rid of his contract with the team. At the same time, gaps in the backing deal are what are currently preventing a decision to try to release him at any cost.
Celebrating would like to see Avi Rikan or David Keltins as Muhammad’s successors. At this point their wages are too high. Yesterday, Betar submitted an initial offer to Riken and the parties decided to meet again accompanied by his agent Meir Ripman. To one of them.
