Atlanta United has acquired goalkeeper Rocco Ríos Novo for the rest of the season after mainstay goalie Brad Guzan ruptured his right Achilles tendon in an April 17 match against Cincinnati. Novo, 19, was picked up on loan Wednesday from Club Atlético Lanús in Argentina’s Primera División and will get to compete for Guzan’s job with Bobby Shuttleworth, who is under contract with the club until 2023. federalnewsnetwork.com
