Sousa takes over at Maccabi Tel Aviv

    Paulo Sousa will lead Maccabi Tel Aviv into next season's Champions League competition after he was unveiled as the new boss of the Ligat Ha’Al winners.

    The 42-year-old former Portugal star signed a two-year contract in a meeting with the club’s general manager, Jordi Cryuff, who fulfilled his promise of bringing in a high-profile figure to replace Oscar Garcia.

    Sousa said: "My vision for the team gives me great heart and motivation for the many challenges we will face."

    "Maccabi is a club with a strong tradition, passionate support and I hope that with everyone working together, we can achieve success.

    As a player, Sousa won 51 caps in midfield for Portugal, as well as spells with Juventus, Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund. He has also managed at QPR, Swansea and Leicester.

    Cruyff said: "We are certain Paulo can help Maccabi Tel Aviv progress in the path that began four years ago and take this club to a different level.

    Maccabi’s owner Mitch Goldhar said: "Paulo embodies the qualities we strive for at Maccabi Tel Aviv - namely discipline, work ethic and respect."
