In the midst of an historic playing and coaching career, current Manchester City assistant manager Brian Kidd played for the Atlanta Chiefs. He scored 22 goals in his lone season with the Chiefs in 1981, following up an impressive run in English soccer, playing for the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, and Manchester City. This week, Kidd took time out of his busy Barclays English Premier League schedule to speak with atlantasilverbacks.com about his time in Atlanta.
