"King Josef" gets royal treatment on Atlanta Magazine cover

MLS MVP. MLS Cup MVP. MLS Best XI selection. MLS all-time single-season scoring champ.

Yes, it was a very good season for Atlanta United forward Josef Martinez, one he'll be looking to replicate in 2019. You could even say that he was the "king" of MLS in 2018.

Atlanta Magazine takes that concept another step, as their March 2019 issue will delve deep into the MLS Cup winners, and the spread comes with a cover worthy of a king, as Martinez is given a crown and cape in an illustration to reign over the city and league.

The issue will be available in Atlanta-area newsstands soon. Atlanta United open their competitive slate on Feb. 21 in 2019 Concacaf Champions League play at Costa Rican side Herediano.
