Levy handed leading role

Guy Levy's has been appointed Israel's Under-21 coach as the replacement for Moshe Sinai.

Guy Levy's appointment as Israel's Under-21 coach has been approved by the Israel Football Association. Levy, 38, replaces Moshe Sinai who stepped up to the national team as Avraham Grant's assistant.

'Biggest talents'
The highly-regarded Levy, son of former IFA chairman Gavri Levy, has been without a club since leaving Hapoel Haifa FC two seasons ago. "I am delighted with the appointment and looking forward to start working with Israel's biggest talents," he told uefa.com. "I have inherited a fine group of young players and my task is to turn them from young prospects into the next generation of leading players."

Step up
After four years as the U21 coach, Sinai was appointed as Grant's assistant following Josef Mizrahi's decision to step down and accept the job at FC Ashdod full-time.
