Chicago Fire release Lider Marmol

Chicago Fire have decided against taking up its one-year option on midfielder Lider Marmol. The 23-year-old midfielder/defender leaves after one season with the Fire. He made two appearances with the team in 2008, starting one of those games.

"He didn't have an opportunity to fit in," Fire technical director Frank Klopas said. "He's a guy that needed games to get going and he didn't get them. It was tough for him to get playing time with [Wilman] Conde and Baky [Soumare] playing so well.

"He wasn't happy. And he missed home."
