Yellow-and-blue brings in Rikan, eyes more signings

The pleas of Maccabi Tel Aviv coach Slavisa Jokanovic were finally answered on Thursday when the yellow-and-blue made its second signing of the summer, completing the transfer of Avi Rikan from FC Zurich.

Jokanovic once more urged the club to strengthen the squad following Tuesday’s 5-1 win over Hibernians of Malta which gave the team a 6-3 victory on aggregate and a place in the Champions League third qualifying round.

With defender Tal Ben-Haim being the team’s only signing until that stage and the yellow-and-blue struggling against a semi-professional opponent despite the scoreline, Jokanovic insisted that “now it is time to bring players because already in one week we will be playing a very important game.”
