FOOT­BALL JOHN Gre­gory, the for­mer boss of QPR, As­ton Villa and Wy­combe Wan­der­ers, has de­clined an of­fer to man­age Is­rael top-flight out­fit Mac­cabi Pe­tach Tik­vah.

Hav­ing been sacked by QPR last month, Gre­gory spent last week­end in Is­rael ac­com­pa­nied by agent David Abou and watched Mac­cabi’s 1-1 draw against Mac­cabi Her­zliya, in which Josh Ken­net came on as an 86th minute sub­sti­tute.

Gre­gory met Pe­tach Tik­vah Pres­i­dent Vic­tor Lu­zon in Pini Za­havi’s Tel Aviv of­fice and was of­fered a £75,000 con­tract to man­age the team un­til the end of the sea­son. But on re­turn­ing to Eng­land, he in­formed Lu­zon that he would not be tak­ing up the of­fer.
