Elisha Levy has been dropped as manager of the Israeli national football team – following a string of poor results which saw them fail to qualify for both last year’s European Championships and next summer’s World Cup.

The Israel Football Association released a statement on Sunday, saying it had agreed to part ways with Levy, who was appointed in 2016. It read: “IFA chairman Ofer Eini met national team coach Elisha Levy today and informed him… that he would advise a board meeting on November 8 that (Levy‘s) contract will not be extended.

IFA President Ofer Eini said: “I would like to thank Levy for his work, we had good moments but also bad moments. We will give the next coach all the conditions required for success.”

Levy said: “I had the privilege of coaching the Israeli national team. I have no remorse that I took this honourable and prestigious job.
