Miles Robinson named in MLS Team of the Week

Perhaps the biggest bright spot of the Atlanta United season so far has been the outstanding play of Miles Robinson. Michael Parkhurst said Sunday that the #2 overall pick in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft has been arguably the team's best player this year, and has shown all season that he's turning that potential into a top-level player. This week he got the recognition he deserves with a spot in the back line of the MLS Best XI.

Robinson led the team in clearances, as well as 8 ball recoveries and a 100% tackle success rate –– and was dominant in the air with five aerial duels. But the stats hardly tell the story for a player whose speed and strength helped him dominate the back line, combined with a renewed calmness and precision in his passing and time on the ball. This is Robinson's first career appearance in the MLS Team of the Week.
