Fernandez emerges as top candidate for national team

My only problem is that I don’t know if he’ll be willing to stay with the team long term. If he sticks around for at least two campaigns, it’s worth it.

Former Betar Jerusalem coach Luis Fernandez has emerged as the leading candidate to become the next Israel boss and will meet with Israel Football Association chairman Avi Luzon on Sunday to finalize his signing as Dror Kashtan’s successor.

The former France legend has been out of work since last June and has reportedly told IFA executives that he loves Israel and would be willing tocoach the national team at all cost.

After Kashtan failed miserably last year in his attempt to lead Israel to the World Cup in South Africa, Luzon announced that he would bring in a foreign replacement.

The names of Roberto Donadoni, Jurgen Klinsmann and Frank Rijkaard were all mentioned as candidates, but in the past week it became evident that Luzon would have to settle for a far cheaper option.

Fernandez and former Cameroon coach Winfried Schafer of Germany look to be the final two coaches in the running for the job, with the Frenchman now seeming like the probable appointment.
