Andrew Cohen is set to remain in charge of Gżira United until at least the end of the season after the former Malta midfielder took over the reins of the team following the departure of coach Darren Abdilla.
Cohen spearheaded Gżira United to a famous victory on Sunday when they beat title challengers Floriana 1-0 at the Tony Bezzina Stadium.
In the aftermath of this victory, Gżira president Sharlon Pace spoke with Cohen and an agreement is all but reached for the former Hibernians forward to remain in charge of the team until the end of the season.
“I can confirm that an agreement is close to being reached with Gżira United so that I will remain in charge of the team until the end of the season,” Cohen told the Times of Malta.
“I have spoken with the president this morning and there are still a few details to be ironed out but there should be little problems to finalise the deal and remain in charge of the team until at least the end of the season.”
For Cohen, this will be his first experience of being in charge of a Premier League club, and is looking forward to the challenge.
“It has been a few years now that I served as an assistant coach here at Gżira United where I worked with several top coaches such as Darren Abdilla, Jesmond Zerafa, Giovanni Tedesco, and Paul Zammit and I can say that I learned a lot from each and every one of them,” Cohen said.
“I am looking forward to this challenge and I am sure that with the help of the players I have at Gżira United we can do a good job and reach our objectives. Our goal this season is to try and avoid relegation and we are committed to work hard to ensure the team secures Premier League survival.”
