Ran Ben-Shimon set high expectations when he was unveiled as the new Beitar Jerusalem coach on Wednesday morning, revealing that the only bonus he asked for in his contract was a championship bonus.
Ben-Shimon was tapped for the position by owner Eli Tabib after the latter chose not to extend Slobodan Drapic’s contract.
“Beitar Jerusalem always intrigued me both as a player and a coach and it is fun to finally be part of the club,” said Ben-Shimon. “During my talks with Tabib I made one request which was to include a championship bonus in my contract. I don’t have a bonus for second or third place. I will try and get the club to match my ambition. I’m not here to lower expectations.”
