The premier English-language reporter on Argentine football is Golazo Argentino’s Peter Coates (@GolazoArgentino, @Pedro_Coates on Twitter), and he joined Joe and Sam to talk about the appointment of one Gabriel Heinze as Atlanta United manager.

In the show, Coates breaks down:

  • What is Heinze’s background as a manager so far in his young career? What is his reputation having managed Argentinos Jrs. and Velez Sarsfield?
  • How close exactly is Heinze to the legendary Marcel Bielsa on a tactical level?
  • What is the reaction in Argentina to this move for Heinze?
  • What kind of style can we expect to see from his teams in Atlanta?
