Benayoun leaves QPR for Maccabi Haifa

Yossi Benayoun spent last season on loan at Arsenal
Yossi Benayoun has played for Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, QPR and West Ham in England.

TEL AVIV, Israel -- Israel captain Yossi Benayoun has left Queens Park Rangers to join his hometown team Maccabi Haifa on a two-year deal.

The club said late on Friday that Benayoun, who last week made a record 95th appearance for his country, will return to play in Israel after spending the last 12 seasons in Europe.

The 35-year-old former Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and West Ham midfielder, had joined QPR in December 2013.

He spent four seasons at Maccabi Haifa early in his career, winning two Israeli league titles before transferring to Racing Santander.

Benayoun told the club website the players and staff ''can bring back the great days of Maccabi Haifa.''

Maccabi Haifa had a disappointing 2013-14 Israeli Premier League season, finishing fifth, 31 points behind champion Maccabi Tel Aviv.
