Hundreds of people on Wednesday morning gathered at the Ramat Gan Stadium where former Maccabi Tel Aviv and Liverpool defender Avi Cohen's coffin was placed.
Former soccer players and Israeli soccer officials came to show their appreciation for Cohen, 54, who passed away early Wednesday morning at Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv.
"Daddy, Avi Cohen, father. How do you eulogize a man like yourself," Cohen's son, Tamir eulogized. "What story can I tell that will describe what you were and what you have been?"
