HOW ACQUIRED: Traded from Real Salt Lake on December 2, 2019..
Lennon is a versatile young player who, in addition to his vast experience on the international level with US youth national teams, has proven to be a reliable starter in MLS. He can play both fullback and wing positions and led all Atlanta outfield players in appearances (26), starts (21) and minutes (1,956) across all competitions in 2020 and contributed two goals and three assists as a right back and right winger.
INTERNATIONAL: Lennon has yet to make his senior team debut, but has been called into camp before. On the youth level, he was a driving force behind the U-20’s first-ever Concacaf Championship in 2017, scoring four goals while being named to the tournament’s Best XI. Most recently, Lennon was called into the U-23s in November 2019 for two matches at the United International Football Festival in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. He appeared in both matches during the tournament and scored twice in a 2-0 win over United Gran Canaria.
OUTSIDE MLS: Lennon made the move to Liverpool following a standout season with Real Salt Lake’s U-18 Academy in which he scored 31 goals to help lead the Arizona-based Academy team to the USSDA championship match. He played primarily with the Premier League club’s U-23 team.
