Freddy Adu has been warned not to move to Manchester United by his coaching staff at DC United. The Guardian reports that both manager Peter Nowak and technical director Dave Kasper have been pointing the 17-year-old in the direction of Ajax instead.
Kasper said: "Does Freddy want to have to go to Watford on a rainy Wednesday where he’ll have 6ft 4in goons on his back all night? The Dutch league is a very technical league and he will be better suited for that at his age."
Well pack your bags, Fred, because Pies can reveal that Watford don’t have any 6ft 4in players on their books, let alone goons. In fact, the tallest opponents likely to be riding Adu in the manner Kasper suggests are 6ft 3in Clark Carlisle and Danny Shittu. And it always rains in Manchester so I’m sure a bit of drizzle on an away trip to Watford wouldn’t dampen his spirits!
