Hapoel Tel-Aviv’s Offseason

As soon as Hapoel Tel-Aviv won their game against Beitar Jerusalem and became Israeli Champions, their new focus should have been on signing new players to replace the ones that left after their title winning season. Hapoel’s greatest needs are at the center-back and foward positions as well as the need for a central midfielder to replace the previously departed Bibras Natcho. Hapoel play their first Champions League qualifying game against Bosnian club Željezničar on July 13/14 which means they don’t have that much time to sign new players. So far they have signed two attacking midfielders in Steven Cohen and Yossi Shivhon as well as center-back Bevan Fransman. However Hapoel still needs to find a replacement for the aging Walid Badeer who was often times shaky at the back last season. They also need a central midfielder and a forward. While Hapoel have put out feelers for several players including Bongani Khumalo and Ben Sahar, Hapoel has not been able to lineup the players they will need to qualify for the Champions league. Defense is key, as it helped Maccabi Haifa propel themselves to the Champions league last year. Hopefully Hapoel’s management will find a way to bring in the players the club needs.
