Yesterday’s news that Sigi Schmid has interviewed with Atlanta United, while negotiations continue with Gerardo Martino, has sparked quite a debate about direction the club should go in. The Mouths of the South discuss that in their new podcast, which dropped earlier this morning.
Fans have been debating the merits of the two accomplished, in vastly different ways, managers. Does Tata Martino’s experience and success around the world trump his unfamiliarity with MLS? Can Sigi Schmid replicate the success he had with Seattle in a new expansion team?
