Andrew Cohen will have the opportunity to don the colours of Gżira United one last time after he was offered the chance to represent the Premier League club during this summer’s UEFA club competitions.
The 39-year-old was due to end his playing career at the end of the season but was forced to hang up his boots prematurely after the BOV Premier League was brought to an end due to COVID-19 following a decision by the Malta FA Executive Committee.
However, the Maroons’ top hierarch have offered the chance to Cohen to play his final matches with the club during this summer’s matches in the newly-formed Europa Conference League.
Cohen has accepted Gżira’s invitation meaning that the Maltese fans will have the chance to watch the former Hibs forward, dubbed Magic Box, for his vision and technique on the ball, for another time this summer.
Once, Gżira United will be eliminated from European football, Cohen will remain part of the club’s technical staff as he continues in his role as assistant coach to first-team coach Darren Abdilla.
