Earlier in the week, Cosmos owner Rocco Commisso gave an interview on Sirius XM.
Does anyone know of anywhere with Rocco’s full interview for broke boys without Sirius XM?— Twice a Cosmo (@TwiceACosmo) February 15, 2018
Fortunately for people who don’t own a subscription to premium radio (myself included), some quotes from the interview have been transcribed by Dave Martinez, former Editor in Chief of Empire of Soccer:
Rocco use’s Cordeiro’s “soccer family” line. Says he hopes to have better relations with USSF with Cordeiro as President but points out Cordeiro’s historic role in impeding #NASL growth.— Dave Martinez (@DaveMartinezNY) February 14, 2018
“If you are a family, you don’t throw your children to the street” (paraphrasing) #NYCosmos
Rocco on waivers:— Dave Martinez (@DaveMartinezNY) February 14, 2018
“The ideal situation for us is what (we had) - and what they have given #MLS for 15 years.
“They give #MLS 15 years of waivers ... they give me five months and kick me out?”#NASL #NYCosmos
It’s no surprise that Commisso is not happy with the results of the USSF elections and the current state of US Soccer. Although he is a polarizing member of the soccer community, you have to respect the passion he has for the Cosmos. If you do have a Sirius Subscription, the link in the tweet below should have the full interview and you can hear the words from the man himself.
