Adu had trials at Manchester United and bagged a mega deal with Nike at a young age.
Now Adu is training with Blackpool and turned out for the Championship side’s reserves earlier this week with a view to sign up for the Tangerines.
Now 24, Freddy Adu opens up about the the highs and lows of his football career since bursting onto the Major League Soccer scene ten years ago.
Adu gives an update on his current trial in the UK with Blackpool, looks ahead to the World Cup and has a good laugh on the subject of the video game Football Manager.
