2013 Major League Soccer MVP Mike Magee delivered a blunt message Saturday about the playing surface at Toyota Park where his very own Chicago Fire play.
@ChicagoFire Trying to play soccer on our $h1+ field is like trying to play hockey with a football.— Mike Magee (@magee9) September 21, 2014
Magee's teammate Bakary Soumare followed up in prompt agreement.
While Magee is out for the season following surgery, he still paid close attention to a turf issue Saturday that has only grown worse in the past week.
The Fire expected the field conditions to be improved Saturday night following a re-sodding, but patches were discolored and caused footing problems for players on both teams.
Even though Magee won't be scoring any more goals for the Fire this season, he scored quite a zinger on Twitter Saturday.
