Raul Joins New York Cosmos

Former Real Madrid striker, Raul Gonzalez has joined New York Cosmos, after signing a multi-year contract, starting from the 2015 season, and would also serve as a technical advisor for the club's new academy, which is due to open next year.

"Everyone throughout the soccer world knows the Cosmos name and the legacy of the players that played for this team previously," Raul said on the club's website.

Cosmos made their name in the original version of the North American Soccer League when the likes of Pele, Franz Beckenbauer and Carlos Alberto signed up to play in the fledgling league. Pele now serves as the honorary president of the current Cosmos, a club reborn in 2010 with the intention of securing a place in Major League Soccer.
