Yonatan Cohen’s impressive form for Maccabi Tel Aviv continued on Saturday as the forward scored the spectacular third goal after setting up Omer Atzili’s strike in the 4-0 victory.

“I’m happy that we won and we look forward to the next challenge. Every team has its ups and downs, we are now getting better after a leaner spell, so it’s great to have many opportunities to score and it’s even better when you win in this manner,” he told reporters after the match.

Cohen said he was pleased to be back in the lineup after being sidelined briefly by coach Vladimir Ivic.

“The coach is the one who decides on the lineup and I accept whatever the decision is. Everything is okay now and I’m happy to be playing, scoring and helping others to score. I just wish I had been able to have more chances but one goal and an assist isn’t bad.”

Maccabi’s next league clash is against Maccabi Haifa and Cohen added: “It’s another three points, it won’t determine the outcome of the championship but we will be totally ready and committed.”
