Last night Pity Martinez joined Fox Sports in Argentina and quite a few questions were raised after those comments began to circulate in Atlanta, but Atlanta United Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra spoke about the comments and explained how they are being blown out of proportion.

Carlos began by addressing how the Argentine media is at fault for the fake drama.

"Each of them were a bit frustrated, Frank made some comments after the game, Pity made some comments, but there's nothing malicious to it, both guys are over it, looks like the Argentinean press looking to start up a fire."

He also explained that things are still rounding into form and Pity isn't going to settle until he's the player we all expect him to be. 

"He's still hungry to prove himself and he wants to be here. He knows he hasn't been up to his absolute best yet. He's been inconsistent, all things we've spoken about, but he's hungry to prove himself," Bocanegra says. "Look at Barco last year, took him some time, what's the culture like, what's the league like, everybody is a bit quick to judge or come to conclusions. Yes everybody takes time to adapt differently, Pity is working hard, has a good mentality, wants to win, wants to help the team, and you saw it in the game against St. Louis."
