Guillermo Israilevich (Hebrew: 'גיז'רמו ישראלביץ‎; born September 10, 1982) is an Argentinian-Israeli footballer currently plays for Boca Unidos. Guillermo's wife is set to receive a Spanish passport and rumors have it that Guillermo will receive a Spanish passport as well and plans to move to Europe at the end of this season since his contract will run out with Maccabi Haifa F.C.. After the 06/07 season, Israilevich signed a 3-year contract with Hapoel Kfar Saba, which is worth $200,000 per season. He transferred to Maccabi Tel Aviv on 29/06/2008. Maccabi Tel Aviv had to pay 550,000 Dollars for him. He has signed a contract for 3 years.[1]

National Team Confusion[edit]

On October 4, 2006 Israilevich was called up to the Israeli national team to replace the injured Michael Zandberg before a European qualifier against Russia. The Israel Football Association had forgotten that they had already received a warning from FIFA not to have Israilevich play any more matches after he represented Israel twice with the Israel under-21 side. It seems that he had already played for Argentina in a FIFA recognized competition at the youth level and is ineligible to represent Israel at any level without special permission from FIFA. As a result, the Israel national football team left for Moscow, Russia with only 19 players[2]

Personal life[edit]

Born to a Jewish father and a Christian mother, Israilevich has said that he is not a practitioner of either religion.[3][4]
