With the search for a new head coach still ongoing, Maccabi Tel Aviv will be guided on Saturday by Slavisa Jokanovic’s Spanish assistant Javi Periera when it visits Hapoel Ra’anana in Netanya in Premier League action.

A win will take Maccabi back to the summit of the standings for at least 48 hours, with leader Hapoel Beersheba visiting Maccabi Haifa on Monday.

Jokanovic announced he is moving to Fulham of the English Championship following Sunday’s 5-0 victory over Ironi Kiryat Shmona, leaving Periera behind to guide the team until Maccabi sports director Jordi Cruyff brings in a full-time replacement.

The likes of former Manchester United defender Henning Berg, who was sacked as the coach of Legia Warsaw in October, Spaniard Joan Carrillo, who was also linked with the club this past summer, and Thomas Christiansen, who currently guides AEK Larnaca in Cyprus, have all been mentioned in connection with the vacancy.
