Oscar goes to Tel Aviv

By Simon Griver, May 24, 2012

Maccabi Tel Aviv have appointed Barcelona youth team coach Oscar Garcia as their new manager.

The club’s Canadian owner Mitch Goldhar decided to bring in a foreign manager after three disappointing seasons under Israeli coaches.

The move follows the appointment of Jordi Cruyff as general manager.

Garcia said: “I’m proud to join Maccabi Tel Aviv, a club with an amazing history.

"I expect to meet all the challenges facing us and am committed to doing the best I can to bring success to the club.”
