Also, the 27-year-old had 13 participants with the national team of Mexico for various games but never really was a factor on the field during the level of play.
Damm who once was a promising player a few years back never really found his high potential as many believed he could reach where at one time it was even rumored that the speedy winger was even talked about going to the Bundesliga. In the last two tournaments in the Liga MX, Damm was having a hard time having consistent playing time on the field as the injuries continued to pile up and as well not being able to adjust to the playing format that Ricardo Ferretti would place on the field.
Atlanta United Is currently in the Eastern Conference with a record of 2-0 and will begin to play in the in a quick tournament labeled, MLS is Back Tournament where Atlanta will have their first game on July 11th.
