Cosmos have been relagated three times in its history, and it gained promotion into the Absa Premier League for the third time this season.

Speaking to the media following his side’s 0-0 draw with Maritzburg United on Monday, Sono detached the “yoyo” tag from his club.

“People keep saying Cosmos is a yoyo team, I disagree. Cosmos is a team that makes history. In the history books there’s now one team in the world that has gone down three times, and one team in the world that has come back three times and that team is Cosmos,” said Sono.

“On top of that the same coach takes Cosmos down three times and the same coach brings Cosmos back three times, it’s history!”
