Atlanta United President Darren Eales joined Dukes & Bell to talk about the week the team had, Pity Martinez’s performance and the team finally getting healthy.

Eales talked about Pity’s performance.

“The towering header which you don’t expect from Pity.” Eales said “He showed a great sense of urgency to score the goal, and then a beautiful pass to Josef so he could score and I’m glad he got that one so he could get over the miss on the penalty kick.”

Darren said the team is creating chances.

 “I thought the spacing of the team was good.” Eales said “Josef had a few shots that were saved by Hamid, and the way Hamid plays against us you started to think is it going to be another one of those days.”

Eales told the guys the team is finally getting healthy.

 “Part of it was we only had three men in the back to play.” Eales said “As we get players back it gives us more options, good news is Barco, Bello they’re coming back, hopefully we will get Tito back soon and getting those guys back it’ll almost be like a new signing we’ve gone so long without having them.”
