Jordi Cruyff New Sporting Director Of Maccabi Tel Aviv
Son of former Netherlands legend Johan Cruyff, Jordi Cruyff has always been in the shadow of his father. However, Cruyff will be leaving Cypriot club AEK Larnaca after a successful spell as the sporting director of the club. He managed to help guide the club to an appearance in the Europa League and a third place in the Cypriot League. The hiring of Cruyff is part of Goldhar’s plan to build Maccabi Tel Aviv into a bigger club, and its highly likely that Cruyff may bring in a Dutch Manager and staff to help him implement his plans for Maccabi Tel Aviv. Although former manager Ran Ben-Shimon may be considered for the managerial position, I think that Cruyff will bring in a Dutch staff. I hope that Cruyff can also help improve Maccabi Tel Aviv’s youth division as well.
