Teams: Maccabi Tel-Aviv, Ajax, MTK Budapest, Israel
My votes go for Yuval Shpungin and Oz Rali.
Shpungin has big potential to be a great rightback, we all know him from Maccabi Tel Aviv, the truth is he wasn`t given the credit he deserved and that is why he left to Cyprus where he is uncontested and respected.
Fernandez called him in some matches of the last campaign and from the rightbacks we had he was with best performance IMO.
Kiriat Shmona is overperforming in the league and obviously their players get highlighted. Elad Gabay has shown great skills defending and supporting attack and certainly deserves at least to be in a pre list.
Dor Malul is a case apart, this guy has talent, but he is not consistent. To be honest I haven`t seen much of him eversince he left to Belgium, but from what I read he is doing well. His attacking skils were incredible, but in defense he lacked sometimes positioning in critical situations which is why I wouldn`t choose him unless of course now in Belgium he has learned it.
Ofer Verta has been one of Ashdod´s key players on the right side. Very effective and discreet player.
But my vote goes for Oz Rali from Bnei Yehuda. Don`t know why the media doesn`t give much value to him or the big clubs don`t sign him, but from what I manage to observe at Bnei yehuda matches or in highlights he is always well positioned. Defends well and has a good speed in attacking transitions. Good for counterattacking strategies.
Rali´s advantage is that he is versatile and could play in many positions not only as rightback. He could also play in the left side or in midfield.
