An Interview With New Full Chicago Fire Owner Joe Mansueto

Planet Fútbol with Grant Wahl - October 3, 2019 - 30:55

Grant has a revealing conversation with Joe Mansueto, who became the full owner of the Chicago Fire recently when he bought out the majority share of Andrew Hauptman. Mansueto, a billionaire who founded the financial services firm Morningstar, explains why he wanted to buy the Fire outright, how it came together, why he thinks Chicago is a sleeping giant in soccer, why he's bullish on spending more money on Chicago and loosening the league shackles on spending in general, his thoughts on the futures of Fire president Nelson Rodríguez and coach Veljko Paunovic, and why he's in favor of keeping the name Chicago Fire.
