MLS side Chicago Fire have confirmed the departure of head coach Raphael Wicky.

Wicky was appointed in December 2019, but in the 2020 MLS season they missed out on the play-offs by a single point.

“I’d like to thank Rapha for his tireless efforts to make us a better club each day,” Fire sporting director Georg Heitz told the club website.

“We felt this was the right time to notify him that we will not be exercising his 2022 contract option, as we begin to make decisions for next season. Rapha will always be a part of the Fire family, and we wish him all the best for the future.”
