Amir Agiov, A player For The Future

Bnei Yehuda Tel-Aviv has a history of producing good players and in the current generation of youth in Israel, Amir Agiov stands out as a player for the future. Agiov scored 15 goals in Israel’s top youth division last year for Bnei Yehuda, and has featured as a regular starter for Israel’s National Team at the U-18 and U-19 levels. He has made a combined 19 appearances for both teams scoring six goals. At the end of last season Agiov joined Bnei Yehuda’s first team and was impressive in his few appearances. Agiov can score, is two footed and is a very technical player. Eli Ohana, his U-19 coach, has compared him to the great Eyal Berkovic.  Agiov has been included on the roster for Bnei Yehuda’s upcoming season this year so expect him to make some noise.

Below is a video of him from 2008

    How old is he? He reminds me more of Maor Melickson. He can dribble the ball, is fast, and can pass, but he doesn’t look like anything special. He looks like he can be a good player but I don’t think he is Berkovic.

      He is 19 now, so that video is quite old. He is a much better player now. I’ve watched him in a couple U-19 games on the IFA’s website.

        If thats the case then I would expect him to have improved a lot than from what I saw in the video. If he is 19 then I think its time for him to make his mark.
