Arne Friedrich is delighted to have agreed a new deal with Chicago Fire for 2013.
The Germany defender, 33, has become a firm favourite for the Chicago fans - and the feeling is mutual.
āIām satisfied to have extended my contract because Iāve had a great time so far in Chicago,ā Friedrich told Chicago-Fire.com. āI donāt know what will happen after next season but Iām going to leave everything open. If we can work something out past 2013, I would never say no to staying with the Chicago Fire.ā
