It’s time for “The Free Kick” with Atlanta United president Darren Eales.  

On the possible return of Ezequiel Barco: “We’ll see if he will be healthy enough to play on Sunday, but it’s great to have him back.  We can use the depth he brings to the roster.”  

With the addition of Atlanta United 2, Eales credited the new team with giving the main squad long-term depth and “to have more and more of these players being able to step in at the right time has been helpful.”  

In regard to Sunday’s early controversy against LAFC, he thought the yellow card decision was correct and was happy that the video review helped with the call reversal.  

Toward the end of the segment, Eales spoke on the league’s continued interest in international players and how the value of some of the franchises have increased.
