His managerial experience is exclusively with the New York Cosmos where he won the NASL title three times in his tenure (2013-2017) including an undefeated season in 2015. His overall regular season record with the Cosmos stands at 65-26-51. His contract with the Cosmos ended this year, and he expressed interest in coaching in the MLS as recently as this summer.
Savarese definitely fits the bilingual, MLS-experienced profile described by Merritt Paulson and Gavin Wilkinson having played for five years in the MLS. He has also played for the Venezuelan national team and a long list of clubs including Swansea City.
