Atlanta United’s Martinez honored by MLS

Atlanta United’s Josef Martinez was named the MLS Player of the Month for August. It was the second consecutive month he received the award.

Martinez broke the league’s single-season scoring record when he netted his 28th goal in a 2-1 win victory at Orlando City.

That goal was one of four, along with one assist, that he scored in three matches in the month. 

The 25-year-old Venezuelan will lead Atlanta United in its next game at Colorado on Sept. 15.
