Hapoel Tel Aviv striker Itay Shechter is the current star of Israeli football.
And after showing his immense potential playing in local league, he is now beginning to shine in the Champions League and on the international stage.
Shechter made a huge leap forward last season and developed into a player way above the level of the domestic league.
He can still improve his abilities, but he is already a potential transfer target for many European sides.
Until last season, Shechter was just unfulfilled potential. He used to drive his coaches – including his coach at Maccabi Netanya Lothar Matthaus – crazy, dribbling far too much and making poor decisions, but Shechter got his head down, worked hard at his game and last year tore the league to pieces for Double winners Hapoel.
Shechter is still far from fulfilling his great promise but under the right guidance and in a better training environment, he has the potential to rip even top teams to shreds.
