Fulham wants to keep McBride out of the MLS

Fulham boss Chris Coleman hopes Brian McBride will remain with his current club instead of making a return to MLS.

McBride's contract ends at the end of the season and the Chicago Fire have made their interest in the Illinois native known.

Since joining Fulham in 2004, he has scored 19 goals for his club and last season the fans voted him their favorite player. There was talk of Fulham selling the player before the start of this season, but Coleman quickly denied such talk.

McBride is a workhorse and even at the age of 34 is a threat in the EPL. If he did decide to leave England behind and come back to the states to play with the Fire, they would have one of the best strikers in the league. His ability on the ball, especially in the air is superb.
