“We want to thank Eric for his service to the club, helping us during our 2018 MLS Cup Championship and 2019 U.S. Open Cup Championship runs,” Atlanta United Vice President and Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra said. “We wish him the best of luck in San Jose and in his future.”
According to ESPN’s Jeff Carlisle, Atlanta will receive a guaranteed $200k in GAM in the deal with the rest of the sum attainable through incentives.
Remedi heads to the west coast to join up with fellow Argentine Matias Almeyda, whose exciting and attacking style has made the Quakes a must-watch team in MLS. He’ll always have a special place in Atlanta supporters’ hearts thanks to his contributions during the team’s MLS-cup winning season in 2018. In addition to being a disruptive force in the midfield, he’ll forever hold the honor of scoring the club’s first-ever playoff goal.
We wish you nothing but the best of luck in the future, Eric!
