"They're not on Atlanta United, because frankly most of them aren't good enough and we need to make sure we go out there and make sure they understand that they're not good enough to play with us, but that's easier said than done."

"It will be physical," said Parkhurst. "They have some big guys on their team, like to play direct, counter attack, and play for set pieces. Pretty similar for how teams play us at Mercedes Benz."
