Maccabi Tel Aviv extends his deal with John DiBartolomeo
Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv signed John DiBartolomeo for two more years. The 32-years-old Guard, who was named team captain in 2017, is currently playing in his sixth season with the team. During his time with the Yellow-and-Blue, John-D became one of the most beloved players in Yad Eliyahu, proved his worth as a Maccabist time and time again and improved his game.
"It’s hard to express how happy I am to be continuing with Maccabi", said DiBartomoleo, "This club and this country have become my home and I can’t imagine being anywhere else. Six years ago, when I came to Maccabi I never thought it would take me where I am now. It’s all thanks to this club, it’s management, coaches, teammates, and of course the fans who have believed and supported me the entire time".
"After all these years I’m still blown away by the love I receive from everyone and I’m proud and grateful that it’s only continued to grow", continued Maccabi's captain, who got married in Israel this week and celebrates his birthday today, "It’s been an absolute privilege to be here and I couldn’t be more excited for our future. Yalla Maccabi!"
