Three more Philadelphia Union players will enter the 2013 MLS season with some fresh European seasoning.
In an effort to further prepare for next year, forward Freddy Adu, midfielder Michael Farfan and defender Amobi Okugo will all travel abroad for offseason training stints. Adu will spend two weeks with Turkish powerhouse Galatasaray, while Okugo and Farfan are set to practice with German club SC Freiburg. Okugo trained with Freiburg last December.
The Union trio join three of their teammates in becoming players who have already gone or will go on European training stints this offseason. Goalkeeper Zac MacMath spent time with Everton, Cristhian Hernandez was with Real Sociedad and Jimmy McLaughlin is currently training with TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.
What do you think of Adu, Okugo and Farfan going on training stints abroad? Prefer they stay in the U.S. and rest? Hoping more players land training stints in Europe this offseason?
