Alan Damián Bender (Hebrew: אלן דמיאן בנדר‎; born 16 February 1986) is a retired Argentine-Israeli association football player who last played for Punta del Este in Uruguay.

Playing career[edit]

Bender arrived in Israel and first trialled with Hapoel Tel Aviv. Due to his being Jewish, he was able to trial with the club since he would not count as a foreigner.[1] Bender was passed on by Hapoel and decided to try to join other Israeli clubs.

After trialling with Ironi Nir Ramat HaSharon and playing a Toto Cup match with the club, Bender ended up signing with Hakoah Amidar/Ramat Gan.[2] Despite impressing early in the season, Bender started to establish a poor reputation when he was fined for not taking training seriously.[3] Just three months after joining the club, he was released by Hakoah due to his behavioral issues.[4] After being released, he trialled at Maccabi Netanya. Then manager, Lothar Matthäus, was impressed by Bender but decided not to sign him.[5] After 2 season's with liga Alef side Maccabi Ironi Kfar Yona, Bender was released and returned to play in Uruguay. He retired in 2014.

After retirement[edit]

Alan started a clothing store in Buenos Aires.[6][not in citation given]
