OFFICIAL: Eyal Golasa Rejects Lazio Move And Rejoins Maccabi Haifa

The player has gone back to Israel...
Eyal Golasa has gone back to Maccabi Haifa by pulling the plug on his Lazio move.

Maccabi were left stunned by the youngster when he agreed to join Lazio on a four and a half year deal on transfer deadline day. The move caused a furore in Israel as he joined Lazio without Maccabi knowing.

But, after a meeting with the club, he successfully rejoined them.

A statement on Maccabi's official website reads:

"Eyal Golasa returned to Israel this morning. We had a meeting and Eyal apologised. His apology was accepted.

"There was never any doubt that the agreement we had with the player was valid.

"We have no doubt that he is a talented player and we hope he can develop and go far with Maccabi Haifa."
