Gabriel Heinze was serving as the main coach at Atlanta United. But everything has to come to an end. It was really sad for both, Heinze and for the whole team. The president and players of Atlanta United said that they are gonnaHeinze and his contributions to the team.
Both Heinze and the team was very sad cause thing didn’t work out between them as it was planned. They had a long-term deal too between them but some recent controversy and dispute spilled away Heinze from the team.
But there were so many other reasons too that made Heinze go away. The president of Atlanta United brought up so many reasons for firing Heinze in an interview session.
So, what’s the main reason for firing Heinze? Well, the president of the Atlanta United team made these answers very clearly and I think many soccer analysts already knew that this is gonna happen. For the last few months, Heinze wasn’t doing good in the matter of teaching his students.
That affects the team a lot, players weren’t good enough at the field, they weren’t able to understand enemies’ moves and motivation. And everything leads to so many loss games. Well, no one wanna see their team losing again. So, the Atlanta United Soccer team board had to make a hard decision. And that’s exactly the thing they did.
Heinze was with Atlanta United for eight months. Certainly, under his observations, the team wasn’t doing well. With Heinze, Atlanta United won only four matches, won only two MLS matches in 13 tries while losing seven times. Heinze led Atlanta United to a 2-4-7 record to date for the 2021 MLS Regular Season. Atlanta United’s bad performance is the only reason that causes Heinze to lose his job.
Atalanta United Current Situation:
We all know that Heinze wasn’t having a pleasing time with the team’s top player Josef Martinez. But the president of the team ensures that the Martinez issue doesn’t have to do anything with it. They said, “As far as Josef’s concerned that didn’t play a factor in our decision.” They also said, “That was, you know, two big personalities. You get that in soccer, you get that at work.”
Atlanta United temporary main coach duty is now maintaining by the assistance coach Rob Valentino. But president Eales and technical director Carlos Bocanegra have already begun the search for a new coach. On that matter, Eales said, “We have to get the next hire right.
We know that’s important. We’re going to do our due diligence to find the right fit.” He also said about the leader they are looking for is, “a leader who is not only committed to a high competitive standard but embodies also a cultural fit and who we are as a club.”
