Dutch reports also link Jordi Cruyff with PAOK, while the directors of Maccabi Tel Aviv were not surprised by reading the news.
"Of course we want Cruyff to continue with us, but everybody should know that every man is replaceable", they declared. "When Aggelidis left, it was said that it is tough to find a person of his level. However, we found Martin Bain and now everybody has seen his professionalism. Maccabi is not based on one person and will not be destroyed if he leaves. Even Cruyff knows that".
