As part of the New York Cosmos’ come back, the franchise embarked on an Asian Tour led by Eric Cantona & Pele.
Cantona has been doing his part to raise the profile of the future MLS side, including a quality interview with BBC’s Football Focus and his trip to Singapore will have done the Cosmos no harm as the people turned out en masse to welcome Pele and The King as seen in this video taken from The Cosmos Facebook page.
Cantona was quick to explain his part in the Cosmos project stating:
“I didn’t want to come back to football after leaving Manchester United”.
“But Cosmos is a different story. This is a big project.”
