NY Cosmos name Valencia as goalkeeping coach

Guillermo 'Memo' Valencia has been appointed as the new goalkeeping coach for New York Cosmos.

The former America de Cali and Deportivo Pereira keeper has joined the Cosmos after working as an assistant at Columbia University, NYU, the Cosmos Academy since 2007 and the New York Soccer Club since 2009.

"Memo is a goalkeeper coach with an outstanding work ethic and his professional experience will help him to provide the best training, not only for the New York Cosmos' goalkeepers but also the U.S. U-18 youth national team," said Cosmos head coach Gio Savarese.

"Memo was part of our staff for the New York Cosmos U-23 team and I'm excited to have him back working with us."
