Fredua Koranteng “Freddy” Adu (born June 2, 1989) is an American soccer player who plays primarily as an attacking midfielder, but also as a winger or forward. From before the time of his signing with D.C. United at the age of 14, Adu was spoken of and treated as the future of United States soccer; even being referred to as “the next Pelé”. However, he failed to live up to the expectations and, after leaving D.C. United in 2006, he became a journeyman, playing for fourteen teams in eight countries: the United States, Portugal, Monaco, Greece, Turkey, Brazil, Serbia, and Finland.
