Yonatan Cohen, the Maccabi Tel Aviv winger spoke about his squad’s 4:0 win over Hapoel Beer Sheva along with looking ahead:

“I am happy that I was given credit over the last few matches and also that the team looked good. We defeated one of our closest rivals and I’m happy that we are going on break on a high note. We can take a break and now I’m also looking ahead to the Israel National Team.”

The season that was:
“We concentrate on ourselves and not on the other clubs as we are Maccabi Tel Aviv. I’m happy that we took the win the way we did. Every season we are expected to battle for the league title and I am thrilled that we were able to capture the championship.”

Getting ready for the National Team:
“It’s a dream to play for my country and I’ll be more than happy to play any position that the Israel National Team needs me to play.”

Champions League:
“The goal of everyone at the club is to get to the group stages of the Champions League. It won’t be simple but of course we aspire to get there and if anyone thinks otherwise then they shouldn’t be here. All of the players want to reach that goal, but now we have to take a break, rest and relax to make sure we are ready for next season.”

Relationship with Eliran Atar:
“Eliran is one of my best friends both on and off of the pitch. He is always talking to me during the training sessions and helping me grow and develop. He’s an asset to the club and I hope he stays.”
