Carlos Mendes named Head Coach of Cosmos B

Club Legend turned Coach


As originally reported by Front Row Soccer, Carlos Mendes has been named coach of New York Cosmos B entering the upcoming 2018 NPSL season. Carlos Mendes has captained the New York Cosmos since the reboot, before retiring at the end of the 2017 season.

In addition, the Cosmos have announced that Luis Guitierrez will be returning as Assistant Coach, and Steven Dias will be returning as Goalkeeping Coach.

When talking to Front Row Soccer, Cosmos COO Erik Stover praised Mendes as the right man for the job.

The Cosmos have announced that Cosmos B will be on March 19, 20, and 23rd on a Long Island location to be determined.

To me, Mendes seems like the perfect choice to be Cosmos B head coach. As a player and embassador for the club, no one knows what it means to be a Cosmo more than him. Now more than ever, it’s important that the club keep that alive as they move through an uncertain future. This signing will also no doubt get supporters pumped to get behind Cosmos B. Do you think Mendes is the right man for the job
