Betar Jerusalem appointed its former goalkeeper Yossi Mizrahi as coach on Thursday, replacing former Tottenham Hotspur star Ossie Ardiles. The 53-year-old Mizrahi, who guided Ashdod the past four seasons, returns to the club where he starred for 14 years. Mizrahi, who played a key role in Betar's first league championship in 1987, also won four state cups with the club. "(Betar) is the club where I grew up and played for most of my career," Mizrahi said. "With this move I have come full circle, and I intend to guide this club to the championship, but there is still plenty of work to be done."
