This game has given me more than I ever could imagine! Thankful and grateful to my family and friends for supporting me as I made the transition from player to coach this year. We came up short, but what a damn season it was. The @chicagofire are back, and we will work our tails off to make it an even bigger 2018! Love you all. #dream #cf97
A sad ending after a great season. Thank you for your continuous and amazing support. #cf97

The season 2017 has ended!! Unfortunately we couldn’t go forward to the next round. It wasn’t the outcome we wanted, but overall I have the feeling that it was a great season for the club that didn’t clinch the playoffs since 2012. thanks for your support! Now it’s time to enjoy well deserved vacations and spend time with my lovely family. #mls #soccer #usa #chicago #windycity #futebol #football #portugal #photography #photooftheday #picoftheday #cf97 #fire #instadaily #instatag #instagram #instaday #instagood #instasport #instamood
