Martino reveals Atlanta United extension offer, but his future remains in question


Gerardo Martino’s future as Atlanta United head coach remains a bit of a mystery, but the Argentine boss says he has an offer on the table to stay beyond 2018.

Martino told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he has received a formal contract offer to extend his stay as coach in Atlanta.

Martino’s current contract goes through the end of the season. His future beyond 2018 has become a question mark amid reports suggesting Martino was going to leave Atlanta at the end of the season.

Martino has also been linked to coaching jobs with the Mexico, Colombia and Argentina national teams.

Martino refuted reports stating his departure from Atlanta is assured after the season, insisting no decision has been made.

“You’ll have to ask the reporter to reveal his source to see who it is,” Martino said. “I don’t even know it.”

Both sides do have options to renew the contract before a deadline of October 1.

Martino has previously stated that he expects to have a decision about his future before the end of the regular season.


    • 100%. No question about..No more Sampson or Arena style of play. No more of ” chase the guys and then tackle, tackle, tackle … and look you stupid….

  1. As an ATL fan I’m hoping he says at least 3 more years to solidify what we are building. As a USMNT fan would be happy if he become the US manager. Worse case scenario though is losing him to Mexico as manager, this would suck.
