Maccabi Haifa coach Elisha Levy was confident on Sunday that the club's three summer signings will improve the team significantly in the coming season. Georgian forward Vladimir Dvalishvili, Portuguese defender Jorge Teixeira and Nigerian striker Yero Bello, who is returning from three years out on loan, were introduced to the media on Sunday and Levy was optimistic that the three foreigners could make their mark as soon as Wednesday's Champions League second round qualifier against Glentoran at Kiryat Eliezer Stadium. "The three foreigners have settled in very well," Levy said. "Dvalishvili (23 years old), Teixeira (22) and Bello (21) are young, but experienced players, and I'm sure they will help us a lot. I think we made a good choice and there's no doubt these players will make us better." Dvalishvili joins the team after scoring 22 goals in 42 matches at Latvian club Skonto, with Teixeira playing at Cypriot club Paphos last season and Bello finding the net 26 times in 69 games while out on loan at Hapoel Upper Nazareth and Ironi Kiryat Shmona.
