Eli Zizov (Hebrew: אלי זיזוב‎‎; born 30 January 1991 in Beersheba) is an Israeli footballer who currently plays for Maccabi Kiryat Gat. Zizov is of paternal Georgian Jewish descent.


When he was six years old, he joined the Maccabi Tel Aviv academy. Zizov has briefly trained with FC Barcelona and was a target of Chelsea F.C., but eventually he joined Levski Sofia, with whom he has already played an official match in the A PFG: against PFC Rodopa Smolyan in April 2007 when he was 16 years, 2 month and 15 days old and thus he became the youngest foreign player making an appearance in the Bulgarian Championship.

Zizov decided to return to Israel, because he refused to sign a contract with PFC Levski Sofia, due to disagreements regarding his salary and playing opportunities.

In January 2010, he made his debut for the Portuguese side Sporting Clube de Braga senior team in a Taça da Liga game against U.D. Leiria.

On 3 July 2011, he signed with the Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv.[1]

On 16 November 2013, signed Zizov with Hapoel Acre for a 3 year contract. Acre paid Maccabi 50,000 Shekels for the Israeli.[2]

Playing style[edit]

Zizov can play as a winger, striker or second striker.
