Chivas is not an option for Atlanta United’s outside Jurgen Damm


Atlanta United’s outside Jurgen Damm will not join Chivas this winter, sources have said to 90min.

The 12-time Mexican national team player has been with the Five Stripes since July 2020 and registered one goal and four assists in 27 games for the club so far.

Damm struggled to break into Atlanta United’s start XI 2021, with 10 of his 11 MLS appearances off the bench. As such, there have been rumors that the 29-year-old could return to the Liga MX this winter, with Chivas specifically mentioned as a possible destination. Chivas has also been linked with former midfielder Marco Fabian at Eintracht Frankfurt and the Philadelphia Union.

But sources tell 90min that a move to Chivas is not an option for Damm, who still has two years left on his contract with Atlanta United. Sources also say that the winger is happy to stay and fight for his starting place under the Mexican Gonzalo Pineda, who permanently replaced Gabriel Heinze as head coach halfway through last season after Rob Valentino’s temporary period as head.

Atlanta United have already worked hard to renew their squad for the 2022 season. Veteran midfielder Osvaldo Alonso and back-up goalkeeper Dylan Castanheira have come in through the door, while defenders Anton Walkes and Franco Escobar have left the club – the former moving to Charlotte FC in MLS Expansion Draft, the latter goes to LAFC.

Mo Adams and Alec Kann have also left for Inter Miami and FC Cincinnati respectively, leaving Pineda with a lot of work to do to ensure the Five Stripes have enough depth and quality to challenge in the MLS Cup playoffs again.
