Cosmos CEO Erik Stover revealed on Twitter that if the Cosmos would have pursued LA Galaxy bound, Zlatan Ibrahimovic if things had gone as planned.
Good move for the Galaxy, assuming he can stay on the field.— Erik Stover (@ErikStoverNYC) March 22, 2018
If the Cosmos got our stadium approved, he was going to be our primary target. Could’ve been this generation’s Chinaglia in New York https://t.co/qUI8ncdgsw
Stover’s tweets personally got me really sad, because I’ve been imagining for years a world where I could walk down the street from my Floral Park home, to Belmont Park, to watch the Cosmos play. That would have been even cooler if the one and only Zlatan was wearing the iconic Cosmos green.
The fact that in another timeline Zlatan could have been playing in Floral Park is making me a sad boy https://t.co/hQ2J044FuB— Michael Chiara (@michaeljchiara) March 22, 2018
Of course, even if the Cosmos were able to build a stadium, who knows if they would actually have been able to recruit Zlatan; but boy is it fun to dream. While imagining what could have been, check out one of my favorite Nike Ads featuring the polarizing forward below.
