Atlanta United goalkeeper Brad Guzan joined Dukes & Bell Monday to help preview the 2020 season.

Guzan talked about the bar being set so high for the team every year.

“I think that is a sign of where we are as a club,” Guzan said. “The fact that the pressure is so high, that we set the bar so high, that we expect a lot of ourselves as a team and we want to be winning games and championships.”

He was asked about the team’s player turnover since last season.

“First and foremost those guys that you mentioned were a huge part of our team,” Guzan said. “I’m sure there will be some new faces that come into that locker room but that’s what preseason is for, to get to know each other and hopefully by that first game things or clicking.”

Guzan told the guys he doesn’t get bothered by outside noise.

“To be honest, you hear it, you know it’s there but it’s just noise on the outside,” Guzan said. “I’ve got enough motivation on the inside that it’s not a factor to me, you play to win games and that motivation right there is all that I need.”
