MLS: Chicago Fire at New York City FC Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a tough year for the Chicago Fire. Another wasted year lead to a midseason coach firing and another year of extreme roster turnover. That being said, there were still some excellent individual performances to salivate over. But the player who was the best, the most, was Luka Stojanovic. Luka started the year slowly, clearly still recovering from the surgery that ended his season last year after only 30 minutes. But he battled back to be one of the best players on the squad when they finally got rolling a bit in July. Until a few weeks ago, he was in sole possession of the team golden boot race with 8 goals, a record he would end up sharing with Robert Beric at the end of the season. He was also in the top 10 in pass completion percentage and was 5th when filtering it to players with more than 1000 minutes played.

He was also a contributor off the field, helping with several charitable campaigns including the supporter run Fire for Food drive, earning him the nickname Chef Luka, cooking up both goals and meals for the Chicago community.

For all his contributions, Luka Stojanovic has earned his place as the 2021 Hot Time in Old Town Chicago Fire Player of the Year.
