Ezequiel Barco, ATL’s Next Superstar?

Atlanta United have signed Argentinian youngster Ezequiel Barco for the biggest transfer fee in league history. Before we get into a detailed film breakdown of Barco’s abilities, let’s look at a little background. Ezequiel Barco is an attacking midfielder who can play anywhere from right wing, to center attacking midfield, to left wing. At 5’6”, Barco makes up for his lack of height with terrific technical skills and great speed. He figures to slot in at LW/LM in Atlanta United’s 4-3-3/4-2-3-1, but if Tata Martino ever decides to give Miguel Almiron a rest in the middle, Barco will be able to slot right in at CAM.

Ezequiel Barco looks like the real deal. Atlanta and Major League Soccer fans alike should be excited to watch him in MLS this season.
