The New York Cosmos and midfielder, Emmanuel Ledesma, have agreed to a contract extension.

“We are very happy to keep Manu in our roster,” said Giovanni Savarese, Cosmos Head Coach and Sporting Director. “His experience and quality are very important for the club. We look forward to seeing him contribute to the growth of our team.”

The Argentine signed with the Cosmos in March 2017 and has made four appearances for New York, netting in a goal and assisting two. He earned NASL Play of the Week honors for his game-winning chip against the San Francisco Deltas in Week 6 of the 2017 Spring Season. The goal was also voted Fan Favorite for the month of April.

Ledesma was named to the NASL Team of the Month for May and boasts two NASL Team of the Week awards. He was also once named Emirates Man of the Match.
