If Freddy Adu is to receive another loan to Caykur Rizespor, he'll do it knowing that he won't be playing top-flight soccer.
Rizespor battled back to draw Orduspor, 3-3, in the second leg of their promotion playoff semifinal on Thursday, but Orduspor won the first leg, 4-0, and advanced to the promotion final via a 7-3 aggregate victory. As a result, Rizespor will remain in Turkey's second division.
Adu joined Rizespor in February on a loan from Benfica that lasts through the end of May. He's under contract with Benfica until next summer, and his club future remains uncertain. In the meantime, he'll have a chance to display his game on a bigger stage when he joins the United States for this summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Adu finished his loan spell with four goals in 13 games.
How would you characterize Adu's latest loan stint? Disappointed Rizespor didn't get promoted? What do you think is next on the club level for Adu?
