From Montpellier to Ferrol
Cohen was brought up through the youth ranks of French club Montpellier HSC. After being released by Montpellier, Cohen landed at Spanish club Racing de Ferrol. The second season for Cohen in Spain proved to be his breakout year and he was courted by Deportivo de La Coruña who agreed to terms with Cohen on a four year contract. Due to budget issues at Deportivo, the deal was canceled and Cohen traveled to Israel to visit family and friends. During this visit, he went on a week long trial at F.C. Ashdod. When push came to shove, no final offers had been made and Cohen returned to Spain to play for UD Salamanca.
Move to Israel
In August 2009, Cohen spurned offers from clubs in Spain and Turkey and signed a two year deal starting at €80K, with a one year option, with Israeli club Hapoel Ra'anana. In doing so, Cohen advanced his dream of one day playing for the Israeli national team and became the most expensive signing ever for Hapoel Ra'anana.
