Petah Tikva Magistrates' Court extended the remand of the two Maccabi Petah Tikva employees accused of attacking Hapoel Haifa's Ali Khatib following a match between the two clubs on Saturday.

Khatib was allegedly headbutted by Petah Tikva’s goalkeeping coach before being kicked while on the ground by a man supposedly connected to the Petah Tikva management.

The two men were remanded to custody until Monday at 4 p.m.
