Israel – Andi Herzog

The current manager of the Israeli national football team is Andi Herzog and has been since midway through 2018. Herzog was born in Vienna, Austria in 1968 meaning he is the national coach of a country other than his own.

Before graduating into the management side of the game, Herzog played football to an exceptionally high standard in a number of different countries, both in Europe and latterly in the United States. An attacking-midfielder by trade, Herzog began his footballing education with the biggest club in his local area, Rapid Wien. A product of the club's youth academy, Herzog progressed through the ranks within the team before making his senior debut in 1986. Over the course of the next six years, Herzog would make 84 additional appearances, scoring 20 goals in the process. During this time, he won the Austrian Football Bundesliga twice, the first trophies of six in his career.

After this, his first club, he transferred to the German Bundesliga with Werder. It turned out that he would stay in Germany for over a decade. He was a great success in Breman, scoring 26 goals in 94 league appearances. Bremen was also the club for which he would win the most prestigious accolades of his career, the Bundesliga title in the 1992/1993 season and the DFB-Pokal twice in 1994 and 1999. During his time with Bremen he cemented his place as regular Austrian international too.

He then moved on to Bayern where he stayed for a single season in the 1995/1996 campaign. He scored twice in 28 appearances on route to winning the UEFA Cup at the end of the season - this would prove to be the last major honour of his career.

He returned to Werder Bremen the following season. He stayed for six seasons scoring 31 goals in 142 appearances before moving back to his native Austria and his old club Rapid Wien. He played two more seasons in his homeland, scoring four times in 43 appearances, before moving to the United States with Los Angeles Galaxy where he would hang up his boots after 27 final appearances and four more goals. 

Almost immediately, Herzog moved into management. His first senior position was with the Austria national team as caretaker manager. This move was perhaps unsurprising given the 103 caps Herzog acquired in his country's colours. In 2008, after a three-year hiatus, Herzog returned to the Austria setup, this time as assistant coach. He held the role for a year before accepting an offer to become the nation's under-21 coach in 2009. With the youngster, Herzog stayed for two years before taking up another offer in America.

For the United States, Herzog oversaw proceedings as assistant manager for five successful years in which the team came on leaps and bounds. Seeking more autonomy, Herzog again moved towards the youth side of the game, electing to stay in the United States setup but with the under 23s rather than the senior side.

After a year as coach of the American youth, Herzog was appointed to his first senior position with any team. Israel made an offer for his services in 2018, one he duly accepted.

Herzog is an unusual manager in that he has only ever held international positions. However, the Israeli national team will be hopeful that this experience will be beneficial in their fight to be competitive on the international scene.
