Itay Shechter: Looking to impress at Hapoel Tel Aviv after difficult spell at Swansea

Sky Bet

Itay Shechter has revealed that he 'didn't feel part of the team' at Swansea City after clinching a move to Hapoel Tel Aviv.

The Israel international spent last season on loan at the Liberty Stadium from Kaiserslautern but has now completed a switch to Hapoel, where he had a couple of years earlier in his career.

He says there were opportunities to go elsewhere but he is delighted to be back in Tel Aviv after a difficult year with Swansea.

The 26-year-old scored just one goal during his time at the Welsh club, and that came towards the end of his spell in the 3-2 win over Wigan Athletic.

"I experienced a tough season," he is quoted as saying in the Jerusalem Post. "I didn't feel part of the team. I had to take a step back to regain confidence and enjoy playing once more.

"I'm really happy to be back home.

"Perhaps I could have made more money at other clubs, but I'd rather play for Hapoel.

"The expectations from me would have been high regardless of my salary and I will do my all to repay the club."
