Ben’s back

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

FOOT­BALL CHELSEA this week re­called Is­raeli striker Ben Sa­har af­ter he dropped down the peck­ing or­der at loan club QPR, writes Si­mon Griver.

Sa­har, 18, was ex­pected to see out the re­main­der of his loan deal at Lof­tus Road un­til Jan­uary, but hav­ing spent re­cent matches as an un­used sub he was not gain­ing first team ex­pe­ri­ence.

Sa­har, who, as re­ported, parted com­pany with agent Pini Za­havi last month, trained with his Stam­ford Bridge team­mates on Tues­day.

“We hope this sea­son won’t be com­pletely wasted,” said the player’s mother, Batya Sa­har. “A player of his age must play as much as pos­si­ble.”

Sa­har played in Is­rael’s re­cent Euro 2008 qual­i­fiers and Chelsea boss Avram Grant will de­cide whether to put him in the re­serves or loan him to an­other club.
