There's no cooling off Nemanja Nikolic.
Nikolic, who occupies a Designated Player spot for the Fire after signing this offseason from Poland's Legia Warsaw, kicked the month off with a goal in Chicago's 2-2 draw at the LA Galaxy. He followed that up with back-to-back two-goal outings in wins over Seattle and Colorado, and picked up his first MLS assist in the win over the Sounders. His final goal of the month came in a 2-1 win over FC Dallas on May 25. In all, the Fire went 4-0-1 over the course of the month.
Nikolic and the Fire will return to action on Saturday when they face fellow Eastern Conference upstarts Atlanta United (4 pm ET | UniMás, facebook.com in the US; MLS LIVE in Canada).
Alcatel MLS Player of the Month is voted on by a panel of select national media members in a process conducted by MLS Communications.
