Atlanta United 2 announced the additions of three more players on Sunday. Goalkeeper Paul Christensen, defender Andrew Kendall-Moullin and midfielder Laurent Kissiedou will all join G-Unit for the 2018 season.
“I’m very happy to add Laurent, Andrew and Paul to ATL UTD 2,” head coach Scott Donnelly said in a statement provided by the team. “Each player complements our group and fill positional needs for the team. Laurent is a smooth, creative attacking player with a great deal of upside. Andrew brings consistency and good game intelligence, as well as positional versatility. Paul is a solid young goalkeeper who impressed us with his technique, willingness to learn and enthusiasm for the club. These three players strengthen our team, and we’re excited to work with them.”
Kissiedou, 19, caught the attention of Atlanta supporters this past week with a good showing in the team’s open training. His technical ability and quick feet in particular drew a few “oohs” and “ahhs” from the 2,000 or so in attendance. He appeared once for the Charleston Battery last season after playing for Atlanta United’s U-18 team in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy.

Kendall-Moullin, 23, played for San Antonio FC last season, his first in professional soccer.
Atlanta United 2 play their first official USL match on March 24 when they host New York Red Bulls II at Coolray Field.
