Two former New York Cosmos standouts have found new homes over the holiday break.
Striker Lucky Mkosana and midfielder Adam Moffat are moving on to new clubs. Mkosana has landed with Finnish champions IFK Mariehamn while Moffat has secured his place with the ambitious Sacramento FC of the USL.
Mkosana, 29, appeared in 25 matches with the Cosmos last season, earning 12 starts, scoring four goals and four assists. Moffat made 22 appearances with the club, starting 15 games, earning eight goals and an assist.
Mkosana addressed his signing via Instagram, sharing that he was “honored to join such a historic club IFK Mariehamms and thanks to the management for giving me this opportunity and believing in me. To everyone who has helped and supported me throughout this process, I’m forever grateful and can’t thank you enough for all your tremendous efforts.”
Meanwhile, the Sacramento Bee caught up with Moffat, who addressed his signing with the Republic. “Republic FC is a young organization, and what they’ve done in three years is incredible,” Moffat said. “I didn’t want to go somewhere for the sake of going somewhere (like MLS), especially now with kids. My oldest is just starting school. I just see it as a good place for my family.”
