The former England manager joined the staff at the Israeli side, who are managed by Jordi Cruyff, in August but has now decided to head back home.

McClaren said on "It's with much regret I have to return to England and leave my role at Maccabi Tel Aviv. I would like to thank so many people for making my time at Maccabi such a wonderful experience.

"The loyal, hard-working staff who work tirelessly behind the scenes, a great set of talented players who I loved working with and passionate fans who showed their support both at home in Netanya and across the country.

"It's been a pleasure to see Jordi and the team mature over the last few months, culminating with a Toto Cup final victory over Be'ersheva and the first trophy in three years.

"I wish Jordi, the staff, players and fans every success for the rest of the season and will surely come back to visit when Maccabi Tel Aviv win the Championship."

Maccabi chief executive Ben Mansford hinted that McClaren, 56, may have something on the table back home.

Mansford, said: "We were delighted when Steve joined us in the summer to work with our coaching staff. Jordi and Steve alongside the rest of the staff have worked very well as a team.

"We are naturally disappointed Steve decided to pursue other options but this was something we knew could happen right from the start."
