Wolff said the most important advice he received from his dad is to get minutes while learning from the coaches and teammates, whether it’s with the first team or with Atlanta United 2 in the USL.
“That’s how players grow,” he said.
Wolff said he tries to model his game after Sergio Aguero, a striker at Manchester City. He said he likes how Aguero always makes runs behind defenses and brings his teammates into games.
Wolff showed some of that at last year’s academy winter showcase, in which he scored six goals in three games, and during the team’s training camp at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. He said while there he tried to use the advice given to him by assistants Rob Valentino and Orlando Trustfull: Be yourself.
“He’s only 17, but he surprised me because he has a lot of ability,” Atlanta United centerback Fernando Meza said. “I thought he was older. He has a lot of talent, a lot of potential. He’s a young player, and you have to be patient (with him).”
