Well we aren't really surprised are we? Those of us who aren't Israeli might regard Osterc as some high profile star due to his quite amazing record in the UEFA Cup, but apart from that Osterc did absolutely nothing in the Israeli league and never really gave much of himself to Hapoel's battle in the league. I mean the guy scored one league goal during the whole season... I don't wanna offend Osterc or his Slovenian fans here, but in my opinion Osterc was as selfish as possible; keeping himself for the games in Europe in order to help himself finding a team in Europe and save energy when it comes to the 'minor league games' in some small league. Osterc was never a real star in the Israeli league, sadly or oddly enough.
