The Chicago Fire and defender Marcelo have mutually agreed to part ways, the team announced Tuesday.

Marcelo played in 16 games (12 starts) last season but started in just one of the team's final 16 matches.

Marcelo didn't record any points.

The 30-year-old Marcelo played his previous eight seasons in Portugal.
