Atlanta United 2′s next manager will likely be named in the next few days, a team spokesman said Sunday.

The team fell 1-0 to Birmingham Legion Sunday, making it interim manager Tony Annan’s last game in charge. Annan took over when Stephen Glass was promoted to interim manager with Atlanta United last season.

Annan, Atlanta United’s Academy Director, resigned in late April after more than five years with the club to become South Carolina’s men’s soccer coach.

Atlanta United 2 (2-1-2) will host Louisville June 6 in Kennesaw.
