Mac TA remains positive despite blowout

Despite Maccabi Tel Aviv’s unpleasant welcome to the Champions League group stage, coach Slavisa Jokanovic remains optimistic that his team still has plenty to offer against Europe’s best.

The three-time defending Israeli champion was outplayed by Chelsea in every aspect at Stamford Bridge in London on Wednesday night, dropping to a resounding 4-0 defeat to the English champion.

Chelsea entered the contest on the back of its worst start to the Premier League in almost 30 years, and coach Jose Mourinho also rested several of his stars. However, it still bossed Maccabi around from start to finish, emphasizing the huge gulf in quality between Israel’s top club and the cream of Europe.
