By Jeff Crandall

We've seen Fire legend Hristo Stoitchkov around Chicago a couple times the past two seasons so we may have a better idea than most on with what he's been up to.

Still, this "Whatever Happened To..."  feature from MLSsoccer.com's Simon Borg has a fantastic number of quotes from the former European Player of the Year regarding his time in Chicago, controversey surrounding his career and his decision to retire.

Our favorite: "I put Chicago on the same level as Barcelona, the Bulgarian national team and CSKA Sofia. The same level. I came here at 32, 33 years old, but I enjoyed it like I was an 18-year-old."
