Reds look at Michael

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY SI­MON GRIVER

FOOT­BALL Is­rael won­der kid Michael Ohana is un­der­go­ing a trial with Liver­pool.

The 18-year-old MS Ash­dod mid­fielder played a key role in help­ing Is­rael reach the Euro un­der-19 Cham­pi­onships in Hun­gary last month, scor­ing four goals in the qual­i­fiers.

Is­rael lost all three matches to Por­tu­gal, Aus­tria and Hun­gary, but Liver­pool scouts were suf­fi­ciently im­pressed with Ohana’s per­for­mances to in­vite him to Mersey­side.

Af­ter his sec­ond train­ing ses­sion, Ohana said: “This is a very spe­cial ex­pe­ri­ence and a dream come true.

“Now I need to show the high­est abil­i­ties and I’m con­fi­dent I can do that and make ev­ery­body around me proud.”
