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.
â€śIâ€™m satisfied to have extended my contract because Iâ€™ve had a great time so far in Chicago,â€ť Friedrich told Chicago-Fire.com. â€śI donâ€™t know what will happen after next season but Iâ€™m going to leave everything open. If we can work something out past 2013, I would never say no to staying with the Chicago Fire.â€ť
