Arne's post about it on his site.
I am pleased to tell you to finally realize that I will immediately put together from my soccer shoes for "Chicago Fire". After long deliberation, came up with the decision to make me a new challenge. Paul Keuter, my media consultant and facilitator of the "Chicago Fire" - deal has been agreed with the leaders of "Chicago Fire" on a contract with a one year term

The American MLS with all its possibilities and the prospect of an exciting self-development, have been decisive for the decision. I am proud of my ambitions as a club to be able to "Chicago Fire" realize.
As a big fan of U.S. I am particularly that leads me to my first engagement abroad in such a great city like Chicago.
Of course, I'm here you informed about all the happenings around my life in the "Windy City".
And the DFB article.
I am so happy he's getting playing time again! ;__________;
