Switching head coaches four matches into a win streak isn’t the most common move in the sporting world, but Atlanta United will have that and more on their plate this afternoon as they welcome local-ish foe Nashville SC to the Benz.
The Gonzalo Pineda era is ready to take flight, as interim Rob Valentino returns to his assistant coaching role after an admirable run as manager over the past month. Now, all focus is on making the handoff as smooth as possible and keeping the Five Stripes’ positive momentum going against their northern neighbors.
For the first time since the season opener, the match can be seen nationally through Spanish language broadcasters on Univision and TUDN. There will also be an English stream on Twitter that can be found using the link below.
