Atlanta United target Yamil Asad involved in car crash

Worrying news out of Argentina

Velez Sarsfield winger and rumored Atlanta United target Yamil Asad was involved in a very scary car accident earlier this morning after leaving a nightclub.

No one was reportedly injured, but Asad did miss a scheduled practice. The cause of the crash is unknown. One can only hope the accident was simply careless driving and not related to Asad’s time at the nightclub.

Asad is rumored to be on his way to Atlanta United on a one-year loan with an option to buy. The Argentine, 22, has played with Velez Sarsfield for three and a half seasons and has made 55 appearances. However, he struggled for playing time in the latter half of 2016 and has only been capped twice in fourteen Primera Division matches.

Velez’s next match is February 11th. We will see if Asad is still with the club by that time.

Dirty South Soccer will update when further details surface.
