The former midfielder has no coaching experience but is the players' preferred choice for the job.
Berkovic, 37, said: "I set myself a target five months ago to be the coach of Israel and I will be.
"I have inspiration, freshness, chutzpah, sexy football, attacking play and interaction with the players - the only thing I don't have is experience as a coach.
"The whole country wants me. No, actually only about 90 per cent."
