Mexico star Cuauhtemoc Blanco announced on his website that he will leave the Chicago Fire at the end of the season to return home to rejoin second-division club Veracruz in January.

Of Blanco's decision, Fire technical director Frank Klopas said: "We respect his desire to continue playing in Mexico during the MLS offseason and continue preparing for the 2010 World Cup, which is a top priority for him. We will continue our dialogue with his agent regarding Blanco playing for the Fire in the second half of the 2010 season and beyond."
 
"I had a great experience in the MLS, where they treated me very well, but at this stage of my career there were some clubs from the Mexican league that wanted me to come home," Blanco said on his Web site. "I will start a new stage in Veracruz, a place where I used to play and I promised to come back." The 36-year-old forward last played for Veracruz in 2004.
