Ex-Villa, Derby boss Gregory lands Maccabi Ahi Nazareth job

John Gregory has returned to football in Israel.

The Daily Mail says the former Aston Villa, Derby and QPR boss, who was earning more than 10 times as much in his Barclays Premier League days, accepted Maccabi Ahi Nazareth's modest offer after despairing of finding a way back into management.

He will be paid 55,000 US dollars (£33,500) on a short-term contract, with instructions to save his new club from the drop if he wants a longer, more lucrative deal beyond the end of the season in May.

"The terms are not great, but John knows this is an opportunity that could lead to something better," said an insider at the club.

"He almost got the manager's job at Maccabi Haifa a couple of years ago, so if he does avoid relegation, he could be in demand over here."
