"First of all I would like to congratulate my players, not only because of tonight's game, but because before the game we secured the second place. I am extremely satisfied with the achievement of the last 9 games in the ULEB Cup. It is not easy to come back after you lose three games in the last seconds. You all remember the game we have shown against Strasbourg, and Kazan, yet we managed to lose. So tonight’s game is only a result of the two months' work where we finally reached our form. Once again the public has shown their best, and backed us all along. The goal that was brought in front of me was to reach the second round in ULEB Cup. Still, about tonight’s game, we were aware of the problems that Hapoel had, but we just didn't want to pay any attention to them, because we had our task, and believed that we were obligated to our audience because the last game wasn't that attractive. I must bring out the statistics also, because the ranking after the first half was 82, and I think it is remarkable. That is the proof of our quality tonight, and everything tonight was colored with our flags...Once again, I congratulate the players. It was obvious that Hapoel wasn't in the mood tonight; partially it was our favor, and partially regarding to theirs own objective problems and injuries."
