With all due respect to the elected officials who suddenly put the Israeli team on top of their joy, none of them can intervene in the appointment of the next coach.

Do not torpedo or promote.

Not Miri Regev and not Mickey Zohar, not Hili Trooper and not Merav Michaeli.

Even if it usually ends with a warning only, FIFA prohibits any political interference in the conduct of the football associations under it. Ministers and Knesset members can only tweet. The next coach will be chosen by the search committee or any other combination the association decides. The same format, by the way, does not. He gave Eyal Berkowitz the job to this day.



And what happens if these or other elected officials decide to turn the threats into action? FIFA intervenes.

The story usually stops at the warning stage, but if that doesn’t help then the sanctions come.

Until the moment of folding.
