His face is well known and has been in yellow and blue for many years now. Caring, motivating and getting excited from each play of every game, emotional on the bench while keeping everyone calm. Roey Gladstone set down for a short interview with Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv's amazing team manager Ami Biton on our weekly show – FAST BREAK. 

"As a matter of fact I'm in charge of all the team related logistics aspects", says Ami Biton. "I'm the one in charge of the players, the discipline, the schedule and making sure that everything goes according to it, and for all of the team travels – domestically and abroad". 

"I grew up in Kiryat Motzkin, started at the bottom and worked my way up", he remembers. "I was working with the team's logistics department, then the operations manager until I was promoted to team manager".  



How does someone from north Israel becomes a fan of Maccabi Tel Aviv?
"This really is a long story. Back in the day over 20 years ago, I was a fan who that everyone knew at the club and I was very close to them, I used to come and help Amnon Netanel may his memory be a blessing, and when he retired, Moni Fanan – may his memory be a blessing, called me and asked if I would like to come to Maccabi and replace Amnon, of course I said yes, and since then I slowly worked myself up".    

I don't know if you have the time, but if you do, what are your hobbies?
"I only have free time during the offseason, and then I'm really into trips and extreme, that's what I love. I surf I skydived even though I'm really afraid of flights, which is something that not a lot of people know aside of that I love to travel the world". 

What is your most magical moment with Maccabi?
"My most magical moment was the "Zalgiris Miracle", it was crazy. There's a story that followed that game, as a result of the stress after the game I developed such a fever that I had to go to the hospital, it was not until the morning after the game that I started realizing what had just happened. Still this was my most magical moment, there could be another one – winning another EuroLeague championship, which is something that I am really looking forward to".  

What is the most important thing on a team?
"The players' character and chemistry, the locker room, it all starts there. If the chemistry and the character are good then even if they are not the most talented players then you can make something special out of it. If the chemistry and character are not there then it doesn't matter how good and talented the players are as you can't make anything out of it".
