He was Given a Professional Contract by DC United at age 14, Now a Night Club Promoter at 25
He was given a professional contract by DC United at just 14 and tipped to be football’s next big superstar. But now aged 25, Freddy Adu is without a club and working as a nightclub promoter to make ends meet.
Just a few of his ex-clubs:
* DC United
* Real Salt Lake
* AS Monaco
* Caykur Rizespor
Freddie, a total legend on computer game Football Manager, has been playing in Portugal, France, Greece, Turkey, Brazil and, until recently, Serbia, where he was contracted to third division club Jagodina.
They let him go before Christmas and with no other takers, Adu is featuring in adverts promoting clubs and bars in the US. This is ad times though.
We all hope he can get his career back in time for the next edition of Football Manager to come out…
