Atlanta United President Darren Eales joined Dukes & Bell to talk some US Open Cup, transfer rumors and will the United add to the team during the transfer window?

 Darren talked about the US Open Cup.

“The US Open cup is still trying to find it’s footing.” Eales said “Hopefully over time it can get bigger, for us it’s a big game because we’ve never made it out of the quarterfinals, and would host a home game and it’s a trophy we want to win.”

Eales answered if Barco will finish the season as a member of the Atlanta United.

 “Absolutely.” Eales said “He’s been a great player for us, and there’s no doubt he will be with us to the end of the season, the reality is different players take different time to perform. Miguel Almiron hit the ground running, Ezequiel took a little bit of time to get his footing.”

When asked if the team was looking to add a player during transfer window.

 “We’re always looking.” Eales said “If we can improve the squad we will try to do that from window to window, we have an open slot to improve the team.”
