Description: Freddy Adu is one of the most incredible story of football. He made is debut in the professional football when he was only 14 years old. At 17 years old he already played 90 professional games, with one apparence with the senior national team. One of the most incredible thing is that he played as regular starter the U20 world cup of 2003, when he was only 14. One of the biggest problem of his career was the position on the pitch. He is a typical number 10, he has the vision, the long range passing quality, the killer pass and the sense of position for be dangerous in that part of the pitch. But with all the clubs he was used as left/right winger (except Rizespor, where he played as number 10 and was the best player of the second part of the season, scoring 4 goals and making 5 assists in 11 games). With National team, mostly with the youth teams, he always played as offensive playmaker and that's one of the main reason why he played at high level with National team and not as well with clubs. I'm sure that if he was managed better now we would be talking of an important player of an important league. Now he is 26. If he will find a team where play in his natural position, where the coach will give him playing time for come back to his standard level, we will speak about the number 10 of the United States National Team.
