Cosmos sign midfielder
NEW YORK---The New York Cosmos announced the return of midfielder Andrea Mancini.
“We expect Andrea to compete for playing time this season," said Cosmos Head Coach and Sporting Director Giovanni Savarese. "He will add depth to our roster and will look into contributing to our overall progess this season."
Mancini, 24, is a product of the Inter Milan and Manchester City academies. Before joining the Cosmos last season, he suited up for Major League Soccer’s D.C. United in their Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup match against Fort Lauderdale Strikers. He has played professionally in England, Spain and Hungary and is the son of former Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini.
"I am very happy to be rejoining a team with a winning mentality that has achieved so much in recent years,” commented Mancini. “I look forward to starting the preseason along with my former and new teammates."
