ATLANTA — Atlanta United on Sunday announced the club has relieved head coach Gabriel Heinze of his duties, effective immediately.

Assistant Coach Rob Valentino will take over as interim head coach.

A variety of issues relating to the day-to-day leadership of the team led the club to this decision.

“This was certainly not a decision we wanted to make at this point in our season, but it was the right one for the club,” said Atlanta United President Darren Eales. “Gabi is a talented coach and is undeniably passionate about his craft and the sport of soccer. We are grateful to him for his service; and wish him all the best in the future.”

Heinze joined Atlanta United in 2020 after two-and-a-half years at Argentine club Velez Sarsfield. He led Atlanta United to a 2-4-7 record to date for the 2021 MLS Regular Season.
