The Chicago Fire have announced the signing of Chris Rolfe, a player who made nearly 150 appearances for the club before trying his hand at European soccer with Aalborg BK. Per club and league policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We are excited to have Chris rejoin the Chicago Fire,” said Fire Head Coach Frank Klopas. “Chris is a proven goal scorer with experience in MLS and abroad. Chris will help us as we push for the MLS Cup Playoffs and we are happy to welcome him back to the club.”
Originally joining the Fire in 2005 as a third round selection in that year's MLS SuperDraft, Rolfe went on to score 40 goals for the club, while adding 20 assists in his 149 appearances.
“I’m thrilled to return to Chicago and play for the Chicago Fire,” said Rolfe. “The Fire has always been a special place for me. I look forward to getting in and putting in the work to help the team.”
Rolfe, 29, will be available for selection as his club takes on Toronto FC at BMO Field on April 21.
