The last time we heard from the young man—despite being (in)famous for over a decade, can you believe he’s still only 26?—formerly known as The Next Pelé, Freddy Adu had flopped out of Finland’s league and was spending his considerable free time on the nightclub hosting circuit. But Adu did make it out of that nightclub and did find himself another job in soccer, and from what it looks like, he still has a lil som’n to offer on the pitch.
Adu’s back in America now, playing in the NASL for the Tampa Bay Rowdies. After signing in the summer, he’s made five appearances for his 13th professional team, racking up three assists—the prettiest of which (we, uh, assume) came last night. Look at that turn! And that perfectly chipped pass! Maybe it’s not too la... you know what, no. Let’s just be happy that he’s out there thriving.
