Q: Problem when reading an associative array form Cookie

Cakephp returns an error when reading an associative array from Cookie. I have an CRM application that stores some clients data in cookie. 


class ClientsController extends AppController {

    public function initialize() {


    public function getClientName($index) {

        $client = $this->Cookie->read('Client');
        echo $client[$index]['name'];


[GET] /clients/get-client-name/0 returns an error:

Warning (2): Illegal string offset 'name' [APP/Controller/ClientsController.php, line 1292]
