At first Djordje Mihailovic tried to use sports cliches on me as he talked of coming home to Chicago with his new team, FC Montreal, to face the Chicago Fire, the club he grew up with and the one that traded him away.

“Well, it’s going to be interesting,” Djordge said. “It’s going to be different facing my old team. My dad says to treat it as just another game.”

He’s having a great season so far with Montreal. He’s scoring and creating goals. He’s playing with confidence again, fearlessly, quickly, showing the kind of style that once brought him to the U.S. Men’s National Team.
