Atlanta United President Darren Eales joined Dukes & Bell Tuesday to talk about the team allowing individual training again, when the MLS might start playing games, and how the team might handle playing in front of empty stadiums.

Eales talked about the players being able to train individually from the training facility starting tomorrow.

“Look, it’s exciting because at least we have that first glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel,” Eales said. “Starting tomorrow we’re allowed to do individual training from the training ground. It’s very limited, they’re not actually going into the building. It’s very strict in terms of the measures we have for safety. Players will be on four quadrants of the pitch, they’re not allowed to interact.

"At least it gets them back out to a facility. Part of this is for safety because it’s much better for them to be doing it in conditions that we can control then going to public parks or gyms that are locally open.”
