    The Colautti loan move is very puzzling. I don’t know why he would want to go back to Argentina now, and why Maccabi would let him go since he has been very important for them in their pre-season friendlies.

    I am very much for the best Israeli players plying their trade in places other than in the poor Israeli League format. This is especially significant for those who are in contention for places in the national side and have the chance to play in 1 of the 4 big leagues in Europe.

    As for Colautti, I always had high hopes for him, especially when he scored early on in his international career, unfortunately it never came to anything more impressive. As for switching back to Argentina, I think that any player worth his salt would rather play in Argentina than Israel if given the chance.

      What other leagues are you comparing the Israeli League to? I don’t know many leagues in Europe that have had 3 different clubs(Macc TA, Hap TA and Macc Haifa(2)) that have made the Champions League Group Stage, aside from the “Big 5” Leagues.

      The Argentine League is strong but anyone that is any good leaves for Europe by the time they are 21. And I would wager if Banfield is stronger than Maccabi. And I’d would rather play in the Europa League than the Copa Sudamericana.

        ….. I honestly think he would be wasting his talent by going back to Argentina now. He can accomplish much more with Maccabi than with Banfield.
