“It’s between him and the club,” Guzan said. “I’ve known ‘D’ for a long time. He’s a great teammate. Us as players, us a team, where we will be is where we will be. From our standpoint, he’s obviously not here and we go about our business in a professional way.
“We don’t let that creep into what we do here. We continue to push each other to make sure we get better every day.”
Atlanta United acquired Nagbe in a trade with Portland in December 2017. Atlanta United vice president Carlos Bocanegra said that Nagbe was the team’s top target that offseason. The trade cost Atlanta United $750,000 in General Allocation Money, $300,000 in Targeted Allocation Money and an International spot.
In Nagbe’s 23 starts during the 2018 regular season, the team went 14-5-4. He was named to the 2018 MLS All-Star team but missed the game in Atlanta due to injury.
