Chris Rolfe’s second stint with the Chicago Fire has come to an end, as the 10-times capped American midfielder has been dealt to DC United in exchange for allocation money.
Rolfe began his career with Chicago after graduating from Dayton in 2004, Scoring 36 times in 124 MLS matches before transferring to Aalborg in Denmark in 2010.
He struck six times in 36 matches for AaB before returning to Chicago in 2012. He now moves on with a total of 48 MLS goals and 22 assists as a Fire player, appearing in 178 matches.
“The allocation money that we received in this trade will give us more flexibility and freedom moving forward,” said Fire Head Coach and Director of Soccer Frank Yallop. “It’s always difficult to part ways with someone who has been part of the club for multiple years, but with our existing depth, we felt that this was the right move to make. We thank Chris for his service and wish him all the best in D.C.”
DC United did well in picking up Rolfe, who played in two matches with one start in this early season for Chicago.
