Vintage: Cantona Named “Director of Soccer”

Update: Now confirmed via NY Cosmos press release…

Yes, it is–apparently–true.

Your newest made-public appointee in the New York Cosmos braintrust is Stu Holden’s favorite player growing up….Eric Cantona, given the oh-so-appropriate title of “Director of Soccer.”

    Talk about a genius publicity stunt. Will create a lot of headlines and get many people talking about the NY Cosmos.

    If they do get an MLS spot, I wonder how the older NYRB fans will react? The ones who remember the original Cosmos. Will they abandon NYRBs? Is NYC ready for 2 teams?

    Awesome. Another reason for me to dislike this reboot of the Cosmos.

    Love them or hate them…..they’re not screwing around or just looking to sell replica shirts and hats.

    Cosmos are coming to play.
