Peter Van den Berg who joined the club in the summer as first team assistant coach was appointed today (Saturday) as the U-19’s coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv ‘Schahar’.

Youth Academy Director, Claudio Braga, told the Club’s official website: “Peter brings with him a lot of experience and knowledge he gained during his playing and coaching career abroad. Since joining  Maccabi, Peter showed us he is someone who has the capabilities to bind people from various departments at the club as well as the communication skills which are specifically required for both team and individual development of players at this age group. We are convinced that Peter can help take the players to the next level of their careers and wish him all the best of luck”.

Van den Berg added: “I am grateful for the trust Maccabi has shown in me to guide the next generation of potential players for the first team. I can’t wait to start working with the U-19’s as of tomorrow and would like to use the opportunity to wish everyone in the first team all the best of success for the future”.
