Quite wisely, Freddy Adu has decided against joining Sandecja Nowy Sacz after receiving a less-than-affectionate welcome from the Polish side their manager, specifically.

After hearing his team were taking Adu on trial, Sandecja bossRadosław Mroczkowski began by getting Adu's name wrong before vehemently stating that he didn't want to work with the former MLS starlet and that the 28-year-old wouldn't be allowed to train with the first team.

Right Said Fred Adu

No country produces a never ending stream of star players. Even South American giants like Argentina and Brazil have their fair share of "the next big thing" that turn out more dud than stud. On the one hand, we as fans deserve share of the blame for rushing to heap praise and feverishly clasp at the next young prospect.

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.
