Youth Division Management



Nir Levin



Levin has been the Youth Division's director of football since 2008 and during his tenure, the division has continued to amass titles and grow in the number of teams and players. Levin's career with Maccabi Tel Aviv began 8 years prior to taking his current position, when he worked as the senior team's head coach during the 2000/01 season, replacing Shlomo Scharf shortly after the season began. Under his guidance, the team won the prestigious State Cup two seasons in a row.

After the second victory, Levin left the club and returned as a coach in late 2007/08, after which he was appointed to his current position in the Youth Division. Even as director of football at the Youth Division, Levin has maintained his presence on the touchlines at senior team games.  During the 2009/10 season, he served as assistant coach to Avi Nimni and in late 2011/12, the club asked him to take on the challenge of a third stint as Maccabi Tel Aviv head coach.  When the season ended, Levin went back to focusing on the Youth Division.

As a player, Levin was known to be one of the more prominent figures of the 1980's, when he played at Hapoel Petach Tikva in over 200 league games, scoring 93 goals. After several good years in Petach Tikva, he played for the Belgian side Gent for one season, after which he returned to Israel and played for Hapoel Petach Tikva, Bnei Yehuda and others, until retiring from active play in 1995.
