MLS has progressed, but cannot surpass Liga MX

Atlanta United player Jurgen Damm spoke to 90min on his journey to Major League Soccer from Liga MX and the innate differences between the two North American leagues as they continue to intensify the rivalry through international tournaments.

Damm joined Atlanta United in June 2020, forcing the club to pay 50,000 in General Allocation Money to Houston Dynamo who held his Discovery Rights.

During the interview he highlighted the team’s excitement at the arrival of another Mexican addition: former Seattle Sounders assistant and newest head coach Gonzalo Pineda.
