Teams: Maccabi Tel-Aviv, Ajax, MTK Budapest, Israel
National Team Coach: The countdown.
Since October 31st or more precisely 111 days when Israel drew Switzerland and were out of chances to qualify for the World Cup, we are waiting for the decision of who will be the next Israeli coach.
The excuse was that IFA were under elections, but it has been a while and still no decision.
Avi Luzon, is keeping the rumours as low as possible, but the media speculates a foreign coach and among them, Roberto Donadoni, Fatih Terim, Frank Rijkard and Ronald Koeman.
On the other side the only Israeli candidate that appears ready is Eyal Berkovic, who went to the media after surprising silence (Berkovic is not known exactly to be smooth in his opinions) said that he wants to be the NT coach and that there isnīt the necessity of bringing an "expensive foreign coach who will still get to know the players will be too late in the campaign", the former talented playmaker continued saying that "football is a simple game and it begings with the heart, if you donīt have it you donīt reach anywhere, i always played in the NT with my heart and under my command the NT will play like this".
