The search for a new coach at Maccabi Tel Aviv began in earnest on Monday following the departure of Slavisa Jokanovic a day earlier.

The Serbian announced he is leaving the yellow-and-blue for English Championship club Fulham in a press conference that followed the team’s 5-0 victory over Ironi Kiryat Shmona at Bloomfield Stadium.

Speculation connecting Jokanovic with a move to England began several weeks earlier and he did his best to evade questions on the subject, including in the TV interview that followed Sunday’s match, minutes before the news became official.

Maccabi sports director Jordi Cruyff, who sat beside Jokanovic on Sunday, refused to comment on any specific names and the team will be guided in the meantime by Jokanovic’s Spanish assistant Javi Periera, who will be with the club for the next 10 days before reuniting with Jokanovic at Fulham.

Spaniard Joan Carrillo is an early favorite to take over from Jokanovic after also being linked with the club this past summer.
