Atlanta United re-signs stalwart Jeff Larentowicz

By AccessWDUN Staff

ATLANTA — Atlanta United announced today it has re-signed free agent midfielder Jeff Larentowicz. A 13-year MLS veteran, Larentowicz made 33 appearances and 30 starts for Atlanta in 2017 where he was a regular in Tata Martino’s squad at defensive midfielder or center back.

“Jeff played an important role for our team last season and we’re pleased to have re-signed him,” said Atlanta United Vice President and Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra. “Since joining the club, he has been a consummate professional and his experience and leadership is invaluable for our younger players.”

The 34-year-old has scored 39 goals and added 20 assists in his MLS career. He made his 338th career MLS start and 357th MLS appearance against Toronto on Oct. 22, both of which place him at No. 9 in MLS history among field players. Larentowicz has also played in at least 23 games each year since the 2006 MLS season. His career began with New England Revolution (2005-09) and includes stops with Colorado Rapids (2010-12), Chicago Fire (2013-15) and Los Angeles Galaxy (2016) before Larentowicz signed with Atlanta as a free agent in December 2016. Along with his extensive MLS experience, Larentowicz also carries a tremendous amount of success as his teams have won the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup (2007), four MLS Eastern Conference Championships (2005, 2006, 2007, 2010) and MLS Cup (2010). He has played in 23 career MLS Cup playoff matches.
