Josef Martinez is happy and ready for the 2021 season


MLS: Atlanta United FC at Nashville SC Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Josef Martinez is a man of few words. When he speaks either through the press or on social media you better believe we take notice. The Atlanta United superstar took to Twitter on Friday to send out a message updating his status ahead of the 2021 MLS season.

After suffering a devastating ACL tear in the very first regular season match of 2020, Josef is finally back on the field and looking on track to be ready to play whenever the league figures out how to start the new season. He posted this tweet of positivity to his fans:

Rough Google Translation: Reliving sensations that were detained for almost a very hard year. The field, the ball and, above all: feeling like a footballer again. It is happiness. 2021 starts well; everything is getting closer. Soon we will see you again

There is no question that Josef Martinez is the heart and soul of Atlanta United. His loss in 2020 ripped a hole in the club that was irreparable. While having an exciting new manager is great, the return of Josef is what every Five Stripes supporter is anxiously waiting for. Hopefully it won’t be much longer until we see him banging in goals and kneeling in front of the Atlanta faithful once again.
