Atlanta United have unveiled Pity Martinez as their latest signing.

The 25-year-old Martinez was named the South American Player of the Year for 2018 after leading River Plate to the Copa Libertadores title.

"We're excited to announce we've secured Gonzalo to a long-term contract with our club. Recently named as the best player in South America in 2018, Gonzalo is an attacking player who can play wide or centrally. His abilities complement our style of play and we expect him to make a smooth transition to MLS," said Atlanta Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra. 

Martinez replaces Miguel Almiron as Atlanta's main playmaker.
