Four resume training with Atlanta United


Atlanta United got four key members back as forward Hector Villalba and defenders Franco Escobar, Michael Parkhurst and Greg Garza returned to training on Monday. The four have been held out for precautionary reasons.

Villalba, Escobar and Parkhurst did not play in Atlanta United’s first two preseason games. Garza appeared in the first exhibition game but did not play in Saturday’s loss to Columbus in the Carolina Challenge Cup.

Atlanta United remains in Charleston, S.C. for training camp. Atlanta United takes on Minnesota United on Wednesday in the next game of the tournament.
