Het lukt Frank de Boer maar niet om Atlanta United stabiel te laten draaien. De MLS-kampioen van vorig seizoen maakt ook zondagavond tegen Seattle Sounders (2-1 nederlaag) weinig indruk. Fans constateren dat het defensief amateuristisch oogt, het fraaie aanvalsspel lijkt te zijn verdwenen en er leek zelfs sprake van een verwijtende blik van Josef Martinez.
Op Twitter schreeuwen sommige fans zelfs om diens vertrek.
I hope De Boer. And Arthur Blank goes away. Horrible defense this is unacceptable!— Mordecai The Awesome Blue Jay ❁ (@ATLBlueJay) July 14, 2019
Josef to de boer “DO SOMETHING!!!!” #ATLUTD— Juan Rios (@JDR_Col) July 14, 2019
Remember all those clean sheets? What happened to FdB defense? 14 goals allowed in the last 5 games. That’s unacceptable coming from a coach that preached bringing a better defense. Fix it. #atlutd #UniteAndConquer @ATLUTD— John E. McDonald (@McDonaldJohnE) July 14, 2019
When is FDB going to address the defending of this team? Two goals against pathetic defending today. The run of form continues #atlutd— Shane_Ferguson (@s_c_ferguson) July 14, 2019
@alex_ky87 don’t let the playoff position fool you, this team under FdB is a bunch of frauds— [insert creative username here] (@Atlantinho) July 14, 2019
But FdB was supposed to tweak things defensively right?— Shawn W (@BiscuitsDad30) July 14, 2019
This team just isn't fun anymore. It's a complete 180 for years 1 and 2 and I blame that on FdB. Players aren't playing as hard. Chemistry is severely lacking. Just not the same team at all. #ATLUTD #UniteAndConquer— Eddie (@Eddie_chief89) July 14, 2019
@Frankdeboer_ Dude you have failed miserably that is why you are coaching an MLS team. Stop talking about your #InterMilan experience as it wasn't your fault!!!!!! YOU SUCK AS A HEAD COACH!....go away!— The Sideline Report (@NFLFanaticsSite) July 14, 2019
Frank de Boer is a football criminal— JB (@jawnbrown) July 14, 2019
I don't rate Frank De Boer, got lucky at Ajax and has flopped hard since.— Ole Gunnar Steveskjaer (@Mirrors90) July 14, 2019
