The question is not at all who will be the coach

For the first time since Idan Cruyff began, he will stand on the lines in the upcoming league game of Maccabi Tel Aviv Israeli.

It is not Barak Yitzhaki who is the subject, but the symbolism in the course, which expresses the loss of the path that Goldhaar has outlined in the last decade.

Once he managed to make a U-turn from a problematic situation.

Now it seems a lot harder

12.5.2012.

It was the last day that an Israeli coach stood on the lines of Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Five months earlier, Motti Ionir and Nir Levin had been replaced.

He received the permanent appointment until the end of the season a month later.

Already on the day Ionir left in December 2011, Mitch Goldhaar made the decision to move the season in peace and appoint a foreign coach from now on and probably forever.



Eight and a half years have passed since then.

11 coaches handed out instructions.

There were Dutch, Spaniards, Serbs, Georgians, Portuguese and Greeks.

A Hebrew speaker was not present, not even in the assistant position.

On Saturday in Kiryat Shmona, this sequence will be broken.

Barak Yitzhaki will be the man to guide the players on the grass.

Other and less happy days.

Will Yitzhaki only coach against Kiryat Shmona or will he transfer more games until another coach arrives? It does not really matter. There is nothing that Goldhaar believes in less than Israeli coaches. He hates the stirring, the involvement and the bill they knock on the local media. Yitzhaki as a persona is not even the issue here, it's more the symbolism of the event. For the first time since the Cruyff era began, Maccabi Tel Aviv has no foreign replacement on the lines.



Why is this so important? Because that's more than anything Goldhar's legacy at the club - discretion, a sensible operation, contingency plans, doing things his way, which is completely different from most league owners. But Maccabi Tel Aviv does not have all these qualities today and it must be said honestly that it has not had two years. After all, the appointment of Patrick Van Leven and the continuation of his employment were also a derivative of the default and not an informed choice. The stew that has been brewed since Ben Mansford's departure and then parting from Ivica has reached the eating stage, and is very unpalatable.



Maccabi Tel Aviv had two mediocre seasons from the beginning of the Cruyff era - 2016/17 and 2017/18, and they were also different in essence, the troubles of then are their dreams today.

There are no practical solutions, no crisis management, there is only one team that is frighteningly reminiscent of the pre-Goldhaar days and his first three years at the club.

A compliment, as he also knows, is not.

A team reminiscent of his early years at the club, and he realizes this is not a compliment.

The task of Maccabi Tel Aviv in locating the next coach is very difficult. The obvious assumption is that Goldhaar will want to appoint a foreign coach. Ivica is expensive, and not sure he is the right man in this situation, but that is already a topic for a separate column. He needs to find someone who will come for at least a year and a half, knowing full well that this season is lost, and preferably one who knows Israeli football (Andy Herzog, for example, could be an interesting option, which might also make and accelerate contacts with Eran Zehavi, Carlos Garcia is also an intriguing name) . Until someone like that arrives, Yitzhaki will continue to shuffle with the existing squad and go see if it will not end in a fight for the top playoff or even worse.



One way or another, it is not certain that focusing on the coach is the main point.

The problem of the highest professional authority in the club still exists and strikes in full force.

The fact that Jack Angelidis was attached to the team last week as an emergency act (a move that already felt in real time as a significant step towards Frida Moan Leven) has something to say about everything that is wrong with Maccabi Tel Aviv today.

Why does Angelidis only come when the situation is bad?

Can this method of two managers in remote control without any real authority in Kiryat Shalom really work?

The trouble is not this season and maybe not next.

For Maccabi Tel Aviv and those around it, the question may arise for the first time whether this is a loss of the road for years to come.

Is this club, which thanks to Goldhaar has become a model of conduct in Israeli football on and off the field, in a constant and frightening change of direction?

In the famous jute cloth, the symbol of discretion in Kiryat Shalom, huge holes have long since opened and it is time to repair them.

Goldhaar and Anglidis have already managed to make one successful U-turn after the 2017/18 season.

This time it looks like their challenge will be much more difficult.
