Former New York Red Bulls managing director Erik Stover joins Cosmos
Well, there’s a familiar name.
The man on his new appointment: “I’m excited to be part of the rebirth of the New York Cosmos. Seamus O’Brien and the rest of the board have a vision to build a proper soccer club in New York. We have a great legacy to live up to and I’m eager to get started right away.”
Why Stover? And why now?
Well, he specializes in making things happen. You know, like getting massive stadiums built and recruiting superstars to young leagues.
Yeah, I can see how the Cosmos -- a team desperate to get into MLS and (potentially, probably) working with the league on its fancy new Queens stadium -- could use someone with exactly Stover’s skillset.
