Eli Tabib insisted he is looking to sell Beitar Jerusalem on Thursday, but said he will only do so should his demands be met.
Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat met with Tabib last week and presented him with an offer from former owners, brothers Meir and Shaul Levy.According to the Jerusalem Municipality, the Levy brothers are willing to pay Tabib NIS 10 million for the club, and cover up to NIS 12 million of its debt.
However, Tabib vehemently rejected the offer, which he described as frivolous, and wouldn’t reveal his asking price on Thursday “I’m under massive pressure from my family to leave the soccer world and I want to fulfill their wish, but I won’t do so all of the sudden and desert Beitar Jerusalem,” said Tabib. “I will leave when I find the right person or group to take over the club. Beitar is up for sale, but in the meantime my staff and I will continue to prepare the club for next season.”
