The New York Cosmos announced today that the team has signed forward Alessandro Noselli.
Noselli, 32, started his career with his hometown team, Udinese, but most recently played for Sassuolo in Italy’s Serie B. During his four seasons with Sassuolo, Noselli scored 38 goals in 99 league appearances, including a single-season career-high 18 goals during the 2009-10 season.
“Alessandro will be a very positive addition to our forward line,” head coach Giovanni Savarese said. “He’s a proven goal-scorer who was productive in Serie B and can help lend his experience to our younger players.”
“I’ve been training with the team the past few weeks and have been really impressed with the level of play,” said Noselli. “The Cosmos name has so much history and New York is an incredible city, so it’s long been a dream of mine to live and play here.”
On July 12, 2012, it was announced that the New York Cosmos will return to the NASL, beginning play at Hofstra University’s Shuart Stadium. The Cosmos’ first game is Aug. 3, 2013 at 7 p.m. against the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. Tickets are available at www.nycosmos.com and by dialing 855-71-COSMOS.
The Cosmos also recently submitted a privately-funded economic development proposal to the State of New York to build a world-class 25,000-seat professional soccer stadium at Belmont Park. More information about the proposal and renderings can be found at www.newcosmosstadium.com.
