Career Summary

HOW ACQUIRED: Signed on a one-year loan, with an option to buy, from Beitar Jerusalem using Targeted Allocation Money. Permanent transfer Nov. 10, 2020

Kinda is a central midfielder who plays box to box and has a great engine. He has good attacking qualities in the final third and his defensive responsibilities are very well engrained in him.

INTERNATIONAL: Kinda has represented Israel at the U-18, U-19 and U-21 levels. He featured in qualifying matches for the 2013 UEFA European Under-19 Championship as well as the 2015 and 2017 editions of the UEFA Under-21 Championship. Kinda has yet to earn his first cap for the Israeli Men's National Team but was selected to the senior squad for UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying last fall.

OUTSIDE MLS: Kinda joined Beitar Jerusalem in February 2019 and has played a leading role in the club's turnaround over the last year, starting in 30 of 31 appearances in all competitions. After finishing 11th in the 2018-19 regular season table, Beitar Jerusalem currently occupies third place in the Premier League and won the 2019-20 Toto Cup Al last September with a 2-0 win over reigning champions Maccabi Tel Aviv. Kinda spent the first seven and a half years of his professional career at FC Ashdod. He developed as a youth in his hometown club's academy prior to landing an Israeli Premier League debut in September 2011 as a 17-year-old. He became a regular starter for Ashdod during the 2013-2014 campaign, notably scoring his first top-fight goal in a 3-2 defeat of Israeli giants Maccabi Haifa in September 2013. Ashdod spent the 2015-16 season in Israel's second division, but a strong bounce-back culminated with a Liga Leumit title as Kinda earned 27 appearances and helped his team finish atop the standings by a seven-point margin. Ashdod's subsequent promotion to the Premier League saw Kinda tally seven goals and seven assists over the next two and a half seasons before his transfer to Beitar Jerusalem.
