Rodrigo Goldberg (born August 9, 1971) is a former Chilean international football player. As a player, he gained national notoriety in Israel for his talented play with Maccabi Tel Aviv and good use of the Hebrew language.[1] Today, he works as a commentator on Canal del Fútbol in Chile.

Time in Israel

Goldberg was an integral part of the Maccabi Tel Aviv squad that took back to back cup titles and a league championship thereafter.[2] He had a strained relationship with club captain, Avi Nimni, and even verbally criticized him in the Israeli media before returning to Chile.[3]

Return to Chile

After playing for four seasons in Israel, Goldberg returned to his native Chile to play for Santiago Morning. During a club match against Palestino, he was subjected to anti-semitic abuse from the oppositions supporters because of his polish and German Jewish background.[4]
