Avi Strul (Hebrew: אבי סטרול‎‎; born 18 September 1980) is an Israeli footballer, currently playing for Hapoel Rishon LeZion.


Strul grew up in the youth system of Maccabi Tel Aviv and has spent 7 years there. During the summer of 2006 he transferred to Maccabi Netanya. After 2 successful years in Maccabi Netanya Strool moved to Lokeren for a 3 years contract worth $750,000.

Being of Romanian descent, the player holds two passports, Israeli and Romanian.

KSC Lokeren[edit]

In just his second game at Lokeren, Strul scored a memorable goal against A.F.C. Tubize, when he scored the second goal of the match, capitalising on a goalkeeper mistake to take a free-kick quickly and score from long range.

Maccabi Tel Aviv[edit]

On June 2010 Strul signed a 3-year contract with his youth club Maccabi Tel Aviv which he left 4 years before.
