Court orders Maccabi TA to pay compensation to Scharf

By Asher Goldberg




Maccabi Tel Aviv soccer club will have to pay its former coach, Shlomo Scharf, a sum of NIS 1.25 million as set by arbitrator Adi Zarenkin, who ruled on the dispute between the parties several months ago.

Zarenkin's ruling was ratified by Tel Aviv District Court Judge Ruth Sternberg-Eliaz yesterday, although she ordered Scharf to forgo 10 percent of the amount that the club owes him.

Scharf said that if the club paid the sum within 30 days, he would agree to forgo the 10 percent, adding that as Maccabi was in very dire financial straits, he would agree to forgo a further 10 percent of the sum.

The dispute between the two parties was over whether Scharf resigned after only three matches in charge at the start of the 2000-2001 season, or whether he was fired. At the time, club boss Lonnie Hercikowicz went over Scharf's head and reinstated Avi Nimni after the coach had suspended his captain following a dressing-room row between the two.

Meanwhile, Hercikowicz's problems continue and he has lodged a complaint with the police over threats made against him and his family by a group of Maccabi fans who have called on him to cut his ties with the club.

Eight supporters have been called in for questioning and have received a caution and a ban from attending practices and going near Hercikowicz's home.

On the team front, Gregorsz Vadzinski, the Maccabi striker, returned here yesterday only to inform his club that they would have to make him an improved offer if they want him to stay on. He says that he has received better offers from Cypriot clubs Anorthosis Famagusta and Apoel Nicosia.

Maccabi TA tackling violence

Despite the taunts of some of Maccabi Tel Aviv's supporters against club boss Lonnie Hercikowicz that have seen some of them having to answer questions by the police, the club has decided to face up to the supporters and explain its policies.

Hercikowicz joined several scores of supporters who came to watch the club in training yesterday in the stands and discussed the violent nature of the fans' behavior last week and the plans for the future, including the major budget cuts for the coming season. The Tel Aviv boss promised that despite the reduced funding, the club would remain a major force in the league.

The violence at Maccabi last week has rubbed off on fans at Hapoel Petah Tikva who yesterday threw a smoke grenade and cursed Maccabi Haifa boss Yaakov Shahar who wants to lure Michael Zandberg away from the club.

The practice, with new coach Nir Levin in charge for the first time, was held up while the smoke dispersed.
