2013-06-23 Contract termination
Dear fans,

After much consideration and consultation with my doctors and physical therapists I have decided to finish my professional soccer career. The last couple of weeks and month I have been suffering from increasing back pain. With two herniated discs in my lower back, I am no longer able to fulfill the demands of a professional soccer player. For this reason, I have asked the Chicago Fire to terminate my contract. I wish the "Fire" and their fantastic fans all the best. My time in Chicago was awesome, I made new friends and will consider Chicago to be a second home. But now the time has come to take care of my body and start a new chapter in my life.

I would like to thank all my fans, teammates, coaches, trainers, staff members and assistants who have attended to and helped me over the last 12 years. I am very thankful for all the great experiences I was able to make.
