Philadelphia Union captain Faryd Mondragon has stated his intent to retire with the Philadelphia Union when his playing day are over.

The Colombian goalkeeper answered a follower's question on Twitter about his soccer retirement plans, saying that he would like to retire with the Union. Mondragon, already a fan favorite, turned 40-years-old today and is in the first year of a what is thought to be a contract that lasts at least two years with Philadelphia.

A curious fan of Atletico Nacional, a major club based in Medellin, asked Mondragon the following:

Farid q pena una pregunta, si quieres me la respondes sino tranquilo. Con que equipo te gustaría retirarte? Un abrazo

The translation, with the aid of Google Translate the Brotherly Game commentator PhillyHoosFan, is as follows:

Farid, a question if you want to answer: with which team would you like to retire? A hug

Faryd answered with the following:

con mi equipo actual el Filadelfia Union

Another translation aided by Google translate, once again, is as follows:

With my current team the Philadelphia Union
