Watch: Atlanta United fans pay tribute to Josef Martinez in 2020 MLS home opener

Star forward Josef Martinez was on crutches in a suite during Atlanta United's 2020 MLS home opener at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. But the fans chanted his name as if he had just scored a goal in the match against FC Cincinnati.

When the clock turned "7:00," the supporters serenaded their star forward for a full minute, showing their love for the club idol who is now on the long road back from an ACL tear suffered in Week 1.
