Maccabi Tel Aviv head coach Paulo Sousa has been invited by UEFA to join the Champions League Cup in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo on its tour of Europe

Maccabi Tel Aviv head coach Paulo Sousa will be leaving for the Bosnian capital Sarajevo on Friday in his capacity as Champions League ambassador after receiving an invitation from UEFA. The prestigious Champions League Cup is at present making a tour through the capitals of Europe, one that started in Berlin (where the 2015 Champions League final will be played) and has now made its way to Sarajevo, carried by former Bosnian star Hasan Salihamidzic.

Until the middle of next week the Maccabi Tel Aviv squad will carry on with their training regimen, as they did this afternoon, without the twelve MTA players on international duty with the Israel national side. These training sessions, held at the Kiryat Shalom Under-19 training pitch due to the re-seeding of the senior training pitch, will see members of the Maccabi Tel Aviv Under-19 squad joining their senior squad teammates until Maccabi's internationals finish their final 2014 World Cup qualifier next Wednesday.
