Fred Rutten is no longer the head coach of Maccabi Haifa with the 55-year-old resigning from his post.

Rutten has been in charge of the Israeli club since January and combined the job with an advisory position with FC Twente.

This season, Maccabi Haifa have only picked up nine points from their opening eight league games and currently sit in eighth place.

Yesterday, it was announced that Mo Allach had resigned as technical director of the club, and a day later Rutten has shown his solidarity with Allach by also resigning. Rutten had an ongoing contract with Maccabi until the summer of 2019.
