Felipe Cardenas of the Athletic joined Dukes & Bell about the team's win on Sunday against Orlando City, what Brad Guzan means to the team and Pity Martinez scoring his first MLS goal.

Felipe talked about the United’s win over Orlando.

 “It was a difficult match.” Cardenas said “I think Atlanta United had a great first half, Orlando was pressing very hard and it was pretty effective. Ironically the press led to the goal though, when LGP palyed it long to Tito and Pity scored the goal, unfortunately they wore down and Orlando is a good team they have talent and were pretty stout during the match and pretty unlucky.”

Cardenas talked about what Brad Guzan’s impact on the team.

 “Brad is a big time pro.” Cardenas said “He’s an international goalkeeper who played in the English premier league, he’s still with the US National team, for this team he’s a leader.”

When asked about Pity Martinez scoring his first goal as a member of the United.

 “He got off to a slow start.” Cardenas said “When I disagreed with the retractors was when people said he couldn’t play, no the guy can play. It’s very customary for players in South America when they are struggling or in a drought and score they brush salt off their shoulders, and when he scored yesterday he didn’t say salt he called it mufa which means bad luck or energy.”​
