Patrick McCraney talks about Chicago Fire FC out of season and the Red Stars on WGN News Now Sports Talk

CHICAGO – The next few months will offer plenty of changes for Chicago Fire FC, but a major position appears to have been filled for the 2022 season and beyond.

CEO Patrick McCraney of Hot Time in Old Town, a football website dedicated to Chicago football, broke the news that the club is in final negotiations to appoint Columbus Crew assistant Ezra Hendrickson as their new manager.

He will take over a club that expects to get a new look after a number of players were not given their options occupied or allowed to leave in free play. Hendrickson will also begin the club’s quest to return to the top of Major League Soccer after missing the playoffs the last four seasons.

McCraney took the time to talk about the fire’s offseason at the WGN News Now Sports Talk on Friday afternoon. He also discussed the Red Stars’ upcoming NWSL Championship match against the Washington Sprit in Louisville on Saturday.

Watch his discussion with Larry Hawley in the video above.
