Since January 6, Legia Warszawa has been at a training camp in Dubai, where it is preparing for the second part of the Ekstraklasa season. Kacper Kostorz and Andre Martins, who were allowed to leave the Polish champions, did not go to the training camp. So far, the only move to the club has been Patryk Sokołowski, who until recently was associated with Piast Gliwice. Kostorz decided to accept Pogoń Szczecin’s offer and signed a 4.5-year contract with her, while Martins probably also found a new employer.
Media: Andre Martins leaves Legia Warsaw after four years. He will play in Israel
TVP Sport informs that Andre Martins will leave Legia Warszawa six months before the end of the current contract. The midfielder decided to accept Hapoel Beer Sheva’s offer and has already flown to Israel to undergo medical tests and sign a contract. Martins decided to sign a contract by the end of June 2023, thanks to which he will earn about 350,000. dollars a year. This means that the former player of Sporting Lisbon will earn less than in Legia – then he would receive about 450,000. dollars for the season.

If all goes well, Andre Martins will be at the disposal of coach Hapoel for the match against Maccabi Haifa, the Israeli league leader, which is scheduled for January 17th. A team from southern Israel watched Andre Martins while he was playing for Olympiacos, i.e. in 2016-2018. Additionally, the coach of the motor preparation in Hapoel is Łukasz Bortnik, who was previously associated with Legia and Czesław Michniewicz’s staff.
Andre Martins joined Legia Warszawa in September 2018 on a free transfer basis and was the first player recruited by the then Military coach, Ricardo Sa Pinto. The midfielder played a total of 128 games of Legia Warszawa in all competitions, in which he scored two goals and recorded six assists. This season, he played in 26 games in all competitions.
