This is how it ends. Yamil Asad is going to D.C. United. He officially said his goodbye to the Atlanta United faithful shortly after the reports of the trade to send his rights to D.C. emerged. Taking to his Instagram account, Asad wished the team well in the upcoming season and thanked the fans.

Thanks teammates, coaching staff and all@atlutd fans for the love and support during all the year. I wish you the best, they will always be in my heart!

Speaking from a personal standpoint, I didn’t expect much from Asad when he was brought in on loan. He blew me away with his work rate and overall quality. He worked extremely hard and gave everything he had to Atlanta United. Despite him joining the dark side, I’ll always remember him fondly.

Thanks for everything, Yamil. Good luck in the future (except when you play us).
