IFA probe

    Israel FA chairman Avi Luzon was questioned under caution by Israeli police earlier this week regarding match-fixing allegations.

    Two full days of interrogation revolved around suspected intervention by Luzon in the selection of referees for Ligat Ha'Al games involving Maccabi Petach Tikva, the club where he formerly served as chairman. Luzon, who is also a member of the 15-man Uefa Executive Committee, was previously questioned last June, as part of a broader match-fixing enquiry.

    Police sources say that Luzon will be invited back for further questioning and that they now expect the entire match-fixing enquiry, which has involved players, coaches and referees, to be concluded swiftly.

    Luzon has denied any wrongdoing, insisting he is being framed, and has resisted calls to resign.

    He said: "I can say with full confidence that Israeli football is clean and pure. It bothers me that they are demonising my name and Israeli football and for that reason I want the investigations to end as quickly as possible."

    Meanwhile, Hapoel Tel Aviv have sacked manager Dror Kashtan. Owner Eli Tabib decided to remove the former Israel national team manager following a run of bad results. Kashtan took over at Hapoel in summer 2010 and led the club to runners-up last season. Hapoel currently lie third in the table, nine points behind surprise leaders Hapoel Kiryat Shmona.
