Yossi Mizrahi (Hebrew: יוסי מזרחי‎, born 1953) is a retired Israeli goalkeeper and is a current manager.


Yosef (Yossi) Mizrahi was born in Jerusalem, Israel on April 4, 1953. He grew up in Katamon and studied at Ma'aleh state religious school. As a teenager, he played on the youth team of Hapoel Jerusalem.

In 1974–1987, Mizrahi was the goalkeeper for Beitar Jerusalem. Two years after he joined the team, it won the State Cup for the first time.[3] In 1994, Mizrahi was assistant coach under Amatzia Levkovic. In 1994, Levkovic was fired four games into the season and Mizrahi was appointed head coach. He later coached Hapoel Jerusalem, Maccabi Petah Tikva, F.C. Ashdod, Beitar Jerusalem FC, Apollon Limassol (Cyprus) and worked with Avram Grant as assistant coach in Israel's 2004 European Championship qualifying campaign.[4]

Mizrahi is described as an "impeccable tactician, capable of turning wretched teams around and loved by his players." [3]

Despite him winning the Championship with Beitar Jerusalem in the end of the season of 2006/07, Mizrahi was fired from the Club and signed with Apollon Limassol in Cyprus.

On April 21, 2008, Mizrahi left Apollon Limassol and returned to manage F.C. Ashdod.[5]
