Ya'akov "Kobi" Dajani (Hebrew: יעקב "קובי" דג'אני; born 5 November 1984) is an Israeli professional association football player and former Israel U21 international who is currently contracted to Hapoel Marmorek.
During a training session on 6 October 2009, Dajani got into a heated war of words with youth player, Raphael Maltinsky. After some physical play, Dajani walked over to Maltinsky and headbutted him in the face requiring Maltinsky to be taken to a hospital where he had four stitches put in. Dajani apologized that night to Maltinsky over the phone. The following day, both Dajani and Maltinsky came to training but both were not allowed to train with the club without going before a tribunal.
In June 2010 Dajani signed a 1-year deal with Maccabi Netanya. His debut season with the club proved to be his finest and he is considered by many fans as the MVP of Netanya in the 2010–11 season. In June 2011 he signed a new 4-years contract with Netanya worth $480,000 which means a 60% upgrade to his yearly salary.
On 17 November 2010 he made his debut for the senior side when Israel played against Iceland.
