Attacking midfielder Sebastian Grazzini said through a translator that he feels no distaste toward the Fire who have drawn out his contract negotiations. But the 31-year old did say it was difficult to play under these uncertain circumstances when he discussed the matter with reporters Tuesday.
He signed a one-year deal with the Fire last July. The MLS roster compliance date is July 1 at which time all contracts for 2012 season become guaranteed, making it a priority for the Fire to make a decision before then.
"If economically, financially there's a good contract, good offer, I'm willing to stay," Grazzini said through a translator. "But as everyone has seen they've taken a long time to decide."
If the Fire and Grazzini are unable to reach an agreement , the Argentinian said that he already has offers to play in his native country.
Grazzini has two goals and three assists in 12 appearances (all starts) for the Fire. He is the team's most consistent play maker and a vital aspect to the Fire counterattack.
