Martinez started 26 as part of 32 appearances in league games. He finished with five goals and nine assists in league games and seven goals and 11 assists overall.
“I’m at the coaches will to play and do whatever I can to help,” Martinez said.
An interesting aspect of their production is that they combined for two goals and 10 assists when they started together in all competitions. As a team, though, in league games Atlanta United scored 13 goals while allowing just two in an indicator of the team’s ability to better control possession when the two are on the field. Overall, the team scored 29 while allowing 13.
Manager Frank De Boer wouldn’t commit on Monday to any starting lineup when asked if he’s figured out a way to get Martinez, Barco, Josef Martinez — the third DP and leading goal-scorer — and Hector Villalba, a speedy threat on the wings, in the same starting lineup.
“They put themselves in,” de Boer said. “I always put a team in that I think is the best team to win against the next opponent. If it’s with those four, I will play with those four. It’s not up to me.”
