Teams: Maccabi Tel-Aviv, Ajax, MTK Budapest, Israel
First training session.
Beitar was the last club to begin its preparations for the upcoming season. Today was held the first training session in Beit Vagan and around 1,000 fans were there to watch and made the traditional pitch invasion the welcome the players.
Despite all the rumours regarding players leaving, Beitar managed to keep most of them. From the regular starters only Arik Benado, Dario Fernandez and Cristian Gonzalez haven´t agreed to cut wages. For Benado the situation is still better because he doesn´t hold a contract and is waiting an official position from Beitar´s board so he could move to Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Fernandez and Alvarez still have two years in their contracts and this is making things difficult to reduce their wages or a team to buy them.
Beitar was began their training sessions without a coach. It still hasn´t been decided who will coach the club. Meanwhile, youth coach and former club player Sergei Tertiak will be managing the team.
