The Cosmos also recently proposed a $400 million 25,000 seat soccer stadium at Belmont Park on Staten Island.
Llamosa joins Alecko Eskandarian, also an assistant coach, to support head Cosmos coach Giovanni Savarese.
"With [Llamosa's] wealth of professional and international experience in both Major League Soccer and with the US national team, he is the perfect complement to Alecko [Eskandarian], Memo [Valencia] and myself," said Savarese.
Llamosa most recently served as an assistant coach for Chivas USA in MLS where he coached since the 2008/09 season. The Colombia native played for a decade in MLS, suiting up for DC United, Miami Fusion, New England Revolution, and Chivas USA, before retiring after the 2007 season. After DC United selected him in the 1997 MLS Supplemental Draft, he helped lead the team to championships in ’97 and ’99.
In addition to his MLS experience, Llamosa appeared in 29 games for the U.S. Men’s National Team from 1998-2002 including matches at the 1999 Confederations Cup and 2002 World Cup.
