Add Sal Zizzo to the list of former Red Bulls seeking a new team for 2019: Atlanta United has announced it has declined the option to extend his contract.

Assuming his fitness issues are behind him, the 31-year-old shouldn’t be waiting too long for his next gig. He’s a veteran who has knowledge and experience of playing for some of the more ambitious teams in MLS.
Best of luck in the off-season, Sal.
