Gonzalo Pineda to become new Atlanta United boss – Joins from Seattle Sounders

By FPL360


Heinze replacement 

Almost one month after firing Gabriel Heinze, Major League Soccer giants Atlanta United appear to have found a replacement. Sounders At Heart writer Niko Moreno reported on Wednesday that Seattle Sounders assistant coach Gonzalo Pineda is headed to Atlanta where he is going to sign a three-year contract.

Pineda was not on the bench in the Seattle Sounders’ 3-0 victory over Tigres UANL in the Leagues Cup. It was “intentional,” Sounders’ head coach Brian Schmetzer said to Dirty South Soccer when asked about the absence of his assistant.

A 45-times Mexican national team player, the 38-year-old has been Schmetzer’s assistant since 2017. Pineda has been retired since 2016 and the former midfielder has never been in charge of a senior team.
