Ex-wonderkid Freddy Adu hits a new low after denying reports that he has become a night club promoter
Once dubbed as the most talented teenager in world football, Freddy Adu now has to fend off rumours that he has moved on to the greener pastures of nightclub promoting — at the ripe old age of 25.
The former great hope of the Beautiful Game in America took to Twitter to refute reports that he had given up football for the nightlife scene.
The former Benfica and Monaco attacker is currently a free agent after leaving Serbian side FK Jagodina, the 10th club of his short career.
Once dubbed the next Pele, Adu shot to stardom after Nike signed him up at 13. A year later he joined Major League Soccer side DC United.
The Ghanian-born former prodigy was even namechecked by rapper Jay Z in his song American Gangster.
But since the initial hype, it’s been a case of much Adu about nothing as his career has fizzled out.
