JERUSALEM - Maccabi Haifa defender Arik Benado, Israel's most capped international, was forced on medical advice to announce his retirement on Sunday, his club said.

Benado had planned to quit at the end of Haifa's European campaign next season but was forced to bring that forward after he was found to be suffering from a heart problem, media reports said.
