Sebastian Grazzini option excercised by Fire

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Fire has exercised the team option in Sebastian Grazzini's contract according Javier Leon, managing director of the Fire's holding company Andell Sports Group.

Leon addressed reporters after Thursday's training session and said that the delay in making the announcement was because Grazzini was dealing with some family issues and entertaining a transfer to a club in Argentina.

Leon said that Grazzini had asked the club to hold off on an announcement, but there's reason to call that into question considering Grazzini has openly discussed the issue for several weeks and also voiced his displeasure regarding a delay in the decision.

Grazzini will not travel with the team to Kansas City to take on Sporting Kansas City on Thursday because he has had little training this week.
