BBC Sport stalwart Alan Green joining MLS

BBC Sport stalwart Alan Green is resuming his career in the US.

The Daily Mail says Green is swapping Match of the Day commentaries for joining Atlanta United's in-house team in their inaugural Major League Soccer season.

The 64-year-old starts by calling Atlanta's match against Columbus on June 17, to be televised by the Fox Sports South and Southeast regional channels.

And it looks like MLS duties will limit his Radio 5 Live work in 2017-18, the last season of his BBC contract.
