Rafael Dahan; born 28 September 1989, also known as Rafi Dahan, is a former Israeli footballer who last played for Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv as a defensive midfielder.

Career[edit]

Dahan grew up in the Beitar Nes Tubruk youth academy. In 2009, Hapoel Petah Tikva signed Dahan and by his second season with the club, Dahan had established himself as a first team player. In 2011, he signed with Maccabi Tel Aviv.[1]

In March 2014, Maccabi Haifa F.C.'s Rubén Rayos committed a brutal tackle which resulted in an anterior cruciate ligament injury, forcing Dahan out for the remainder of the season; Rubén Rayos received a straight red card for his action.[2][3]

After spending the next 12 months in recovery, Dahan was informed by his medical staff that his injury will not fully heal, forcing him to retire at age 25.[4]
