Arsenal hero Ljungberg settling quickly at Chicago Fire

Arsenal hero Freddie Ljungberg is happy with his move to Chicago Fire.

The Swede caused some controversy becoming the first designated player to swap clubs, moving from the Seattle Sounders earlier this MLS season.

It's been a cultural adjustment. In the U.S., Ljungberg says, "you get recognized and people talk to you, but it's not the same. Soccer, or, football, is religion back home."

But he already feels settled in Chicago.

"I lived 10 years, all of my grown-up life in London. It reminds me of London," he told chicagonow.com. "You have a beach downtown, which is quite cool, I must say, to have in a big city. I do really like it."
