Haifa in dire straits after Mac PT defeat

There is still no end in a sight to the crisis at Maccabi Haifa after the Greens suffered a Premier League-high 11th defeat to the season on Saturday, while Hapoel Beersheba kept alive its lingering title hopes with a 3-0 win over Hapoel Acre.

Daniel Dimov’s 34th-minute winner gave Maccabi Petah Tikva a 1-0 victory against Haifa at Sammy Ofer Stadium, resulting in an uncharacteristic dressing room outburst by owner Jacob Shachar after the match.

“This is disgusting, I’m ashamed. I haven’t seen anything like this in my 23 years at the club,” Shachar told the players. “We have 18,000 season-ticket holders, a new stadium, and only the team is weak. I will notify players of their release from the club on Sunday.”
