Rafael Robayo spoke to the Colombian media Friday to discuss his departure from Colombian club Millionairos. He said his new contract was a two year contract. The first year of the contract is a loan with the Fire holding the right to purchase the 2nd year or extend the loan.
Robayo also said the main reason he went to Chicago was for the benefit of his family. He said he wants to go someplace his family will be comfortable and will live quiet lives without much pressure.
He also mentioned that going to MLS makes it unlikely he will ever play for Colombia. He said it was unfair because of the league's improving quality, but that he would work hard so he could someday wear the Colombian shirt again.
