Freddy Adu signs for Aris Thessaloniki on 18-month loan deal

Freddy Adu’s less-than-convincing career took an unexpected turn today, with the news – revealed by Adu himself on his Twitter page – that he is to join Aris FC of Greece on an 18-month loan deal from current club Benfica. It’s his third loan spell since the summer of 2008, when he was farmed out to Monaco. Does this mean that he looks good in training but flatters to deceive? Certainly all the Nike-flavoured hype about Adu has proved to be rather without substance – but he’s still very young (20), so he may yet deliver on his potential.

Btw, the Mirror claimed earlier today that “Phil Brown is moving out Kevin Kilbane and Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink to fund a loan bid for American striker Freddy Adu”, but the young American chose Greece instead – an interesting choice, and I wonder if Jozy Altidore had any say in it? In other words, did Jozy warn his compatriot that Hull is a freezing sh*thole?

    Adu has already peaked. He will never top as good as he was in Champ Man 03-05.

    Adu will never break into the big Soccer leagues, he does not have the personality and if you observe him closely, he is not a team player. He looks lost and very uncomfortable on the field. What hurt him most is the lack of experience, he never reveived the rearing and guidance from youth coaches and it holding him back, in better words he does not have the confidence to be a good player. A good amateur league team would do im justice

    I think this is it for Adu. So, many loans. Let’s watch and see what he can do at ARIS. If not, he’s a failure.
