Tamir to stick with Trot­ters

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport - By si­Mon Griver

Is­raeli mid­fielder Tamir Co­hen is de­ter­mined to see out his three-year con­tract with Bolton, even though he has failed to make an ap­pear­ance this sea­son.

His fa­ther, for­mer Liver­pool star avi Co­hen, said that Trot­ters man­ager Gary Meg­son re­cently had talks with the Is­raeli mid­fielder and told him that his fu­ture is with the Premier League club.

“Tamir has had a lot of bad luck with in­juries lately,” said Co­hen. “He picked up a mus­cle strain when train­ing with the Is­rael team last week and re­turned to Bolton in­jured. He should be fit by next week. This is the sec­ond time he has re­turned in­jured from in­ter­na­tional duty.”

Co­hen signed for Bolton in Jan­uary from Mac­cabi Ne­tanya and man­aged 10 ap­pear­ances for the Trot­ters last sea­son in­clud­ing a goal in the 3-1 de­feat to Liver­pool at the Ree­bok Sta­dium. off the pitch, he was un­happy telling the Is­raeli press that there was noth­ing to do in Bolton at nights.

De­spite his fail­ure to break into the first team this year, he is much more set­tled so­cially, hav­ing mar­ried in the sum­mer in Is­rael and moved to Manch­ester with his wife Yael when re­turn­ing to eng­land.

“Tamir is well aware that this is a char­ac­ter build­ing sit­u­a­tion and he is de­ter­mined to win his place back.”
