Arveladze’s first Mac TA challenge will be to overcome departure of star Zahavi

Maccabi Tel Aviv left for its pre-season training camp in Austria on Thursday without captain Eran Zahavi, but with new coach Shota Arveladze.

Zahavi is set to complete his record move to Chinese club Guangzhou R&F over the weekend, leaving a massive void the yellowand- blue will struggle to fill.

Maccabi is set to receive over $8 million for Zahavi, the most lucrative transfer ever involving an Israeli club. The 28-year-old will earn an estimated $12.5 million over the next two-and-a-half years, as well as a signing bonus in the excess of $5 million.
