Atlanta United full-backs eagerly await Sunday’s friendly
Spending a lot of time watching, Hernandez said he learned patience and professionalism, for which Pineda praised him, and that he was ready when there was an opportunity, as there will be. probably Sunday.
“I have to take advantage of it,” he said. “It’s a good opportunity for me. I wish Brooks Lennon a speedy recovery and that we can compete for a spot. Chivas is going to be a good time to start.
Gutman belonged to Atlanta United last season but spent it on loan with the New York Red Bulls so he could get more playing time while Bello started most games for the Five Stripes. Gutman has two goals and two assists in 22 appearances for New York.
With Bello now sold to Arminia Bielefeld in Germany, Gutman said he was excited about the potential move. Gutman is competing against Mikey Ambrose and Homegrown signing Caleb Wiley for the spot.
“I was really excited to join the club this year to come back on loan,” Gutman said. “I think it’s one of the best clubs in the league. So hopefully I can just add to the history that the club has already made in a short time.
Both players said they thought their skills matched well with Pineda’s change from three centre-backs with two wingers to two centre-backs with two full-backs. Pineda wants full-backs to be essentially wingers, going from the penalty area to the box.
Hernandez said that because he loves running, he can be a “secret weapon” in the future. Gutman has already shown the ability to attack with overlapping runs, overlapping runs and as a threat to break down a high defensive line with a space run. He said he and Luiz Araujo were developing a good understanding of this tactic.
Gutman said he learns where teammates such as Josef Martinez and Thiago Almada like to receive crosses and passes in the box.
“With the attack we have, I think my serve has to be in a really good position to give them a chance to score,” he said. “I think our offense is probably one of the best in the league. So if I can put them in positions to create chances, and that’s what I’m going to do.
