Very sad news coming out of Israel today as Avi Cohen has been declared dead by his doctors at Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Hospital.
Cohen, 54, was critically injured in a traffic accident on December 20. The former Liverpool player was riding his motorcycle when he was reportedly hit by a car. At the hospital he underwent immediate surgery and has been in the ICU for the last seven days.
In 1979, he joined the Reds for a fee of $450,000, becoming the first Israeli to play for an English team.
He played a total of 18 games for the Reds, scoring 1 goal.
To his family and friends our condolences.
