On September 20, Beijing time, the Dutch giants Eindhoven officially announced that former R&F foreign aid Zahavi will join the team in the form of a free transfer, and the two sides signed a two-year contract.
Israeli striker Zahavi is 33 years old and joined Guangzhou R&F in the summer of 2016. In 117 official games, Zahavi contributed 31 assists for R&F scoring 103 goals, and he was the first scorer in R&F team history. Zahavi was also elected as the Chinese Footballer in 2017.
At the end of August this year, Guangzhou R&F officially confirmed that Zahavi would be allowed to return to Israel to participate in the UEFA Europa League tournament. Zahavi did not return to China afterwards, and therefore had a contract dispute with R&F.
It is worth mentioning that the current Eindhoven coach is Schmidt, the former head coach of National Security, who also praised Zahawi before.
