JERUSALEM, Jan 29 (Reuters) - Eli Ohana was named as the new coach of struggling Hapoel Kfar Saba on Sunday, the Israeli Premier League club said.
Ohana, whose contract is until the end of next season, replaces Elisha Levy who was dismissed earlier on Sunday after a season and a half in charge in which he led the club to promotion but has since struggled to bring success.
Kfar Saba are rooted to the bottom of the 12-team Premier League with 10 points from 19 matches, seven fewer than 11th placed Maccabi Petah Tikva and eight points from safety.
Ohana returns to the dugout after a five-month break. He quit as coach of Betar Jerusalem in September, saying he did not want to work under their new billionaire owner Arkady Gaydamak.
