Fresh from the multi-year contract extension announced Monday, Atlanta vice president and technical director Carlos Bocanegra said nothing has changed.
Atlanta United wants to be Concacaf’s “First Team”
Even with the bit of luck they’ve had since their big break into the league. Atlanta exploded onto the stage during the 2017 expansion season, then won the 2018 MLS Cup dominantly. This season, Atlanta made the Audi 2021 MLS Cup Playoffs after a second-half revival that began under interim head coach Rob Valentino and continued under new signing Gonzalo Pineda.
“Every time you think about starting to exercise, you’re going to have ups and downs,” says Bocanegra. “We had some successes, we had some failures and had some struggles. “We always strive to be better. We want to be the first team on the continent. We want to be an icon in a global brand, but we will also never forget what brought us to that point and focus on our community.
