ATLANTA, GEORGIA—To address its losing streak and injury problem, the Atlanta United top brass reportedly hopes to sign Maccabi Haifa goalkeeper Josh Cohen and forward Tommy Scoops as the primary transfer window opens on May 4.
With a season-ending injury to veteran goalkeeper Brad Guzan and injury to some key players, United needs some new faces to turn things around and start a winning streak for the team. Last April 30, the visiting United FC suffered its third defeat on the road 1-2 against the home team CF Montreal at Stade Saputo. The visitor was at a disadvantage early in the fourth minute 0-1.
But United’s striker Marcelino Moreno tied the score in the 51st minute.
In the second half, the home team scored another goal which would result in victory. United FC head coach Gonzalo Pineda is sad about their defeat but happy that his players played well on the road. “The team did a lot of good performances individually, some tremendous performances, but then at the end, we fell short,” Pineda said.
“We certainly dominated the game. We certainly were in control of the game. But we couldn’t finalize a good result due to the lack of final product in both boxes,” Pineda added. The team homes to finally end their losing streak when they host the Chicago Fire on May 7 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
