Quick kicks: Atlanta United’s Hector Villalba

Atlanta United’s Hector Villalba answered a few questions on Wednesday before the team’s training session on the fog-covered fields in Marietta.

Villalba, a native of Argentina, is one of the team’s three Designated Players. Atlanta United will play Chattanooga in its first preseason game on Saturday at Finley Stadium.

Adapting, I thought, would take a little more time but I’m adapting pretty well.

Q: What is his goal, or does he hope to accomplish on Saturday in the first preseason game?
A: To get some minutes, touches with the ball. And obviously to win and start scoring goals.

Q: How is implementing manager Gerardo Martino’s system coming along? Is it easy or difficult?
A: Excellent, excellent. Every day in practice we are working on things that he wants to do in games. Really, it’s going well.

Q: Someone on twitter wants to know who is the fastest player on the team now?
A: We haven’t had a chance yet to decide. In a few months we will find out.
