Schaumburg native Chris Mueller returns home to play for Chicago Fire

CHICAGO (CBS) -- The Chicago Fire FC are bringing Schaumburg native Chris Mueller home after using a free agent transfer to acquire him from the Scottish Premier League. Prior to spending half a season in Europe, the 25-year-old winger was with Orlando City SC for four seasons. He led the Lions in scoring in 2020, as they made the playoffs for the first time. And now, he is finally home. "It's honestly a dream come true, you know, to be back at home, with my family's obviously out here. Growing up here, just, it's really cool," Mueller said. "It's a really special feeling to be able to come back home and to get a chance to represent my city – something I'm really excited about."

Orlando City’s Return on Investment for Chris Mueller Improves

What started out as a failure to take full advantage of a valuable club asset has turned out better than expected. Orlando City wasn’t able to re-sign winger Chris Mueller or secure a transfer deal to move him before losing its leverage. As a result, Mueller left on a free transfer to Hibernian FC at the end of last season — after being held in Orlando despite his wishes to move on and join his new team as soon as possible.
