The King is back!!

Cantona makes a shock return to football today as Director of Soccer at New York Cosmos.

He said: “I am very honoured to join the legendary New York Cosmos. It’s a big project, a wonderful project.

“The Cosmos are very strong, beautifully made, with a great past. It’s kind of a mix between football and art.”

Cantona vows to restore the glory days of the five-times champions and help build them into one of the world’s best clubs.

He said: “I will do everything I can to help us first find our way to regain the No 1 position in the United States, and then for us to become one of the best clubs in the world.”

Cantona will be officially unveiled in a blaze of publicity by Cosmos chairman Paul Kemsley, the flamboyant former vice-chairman of Tottenham Hotspur.

The Cosmos are set to return to big-time football in 2013.
