The oft-traveled Freddy Adu will now take his talents to Florida's Sun Coast, where he'll reunite with Thomas Rongen and NASL's Tampa Bay Rowdies.

If you had Tampa Bay as Freddy Adu's latest stop after flaming out of Finland's Veikkausliiga, congratulations. While most people probably had the New York Cosmos as Adu's NASL destination, it was Thomas Rongen - Adu's USMNT U-20's mentor that was able to convince him to return to the United States and play for the Rowdies.

One Major League Soccer playoff appearance in their six season existence has left Philadelphia Union fans hungry for more, much more. Despite two consecutive runner-up performances in the US Open Cup, the Union have underachieved mightily since their first MLS game in 2010.

Once touted as the 'new Pele' back in the mid-2000s, Ghanian-born US international Freddy Adu never quite lived up to all the hype. Indeed, his career is a harsh lesson in just how difficult it is for a feted young footballer to deal with the pressure and make it to the very top. From France to Brazil, Serbia to Finland, Adu's career is strewn with failed attempts to kickstart his career.
