Adu trial with AZ Alkmaar ends

Less than a week after joining AZ Alkmaar on a trial basis, Freddy Adu’s time at the club has come to a close.

AZ head coach Marco Van Basten has seen enough of Freddy Adu in his six-day trial to decide against giving the 25-year-old midfielder a contract, the club announced on Sunday. Adu played 45 minutes in AZ’s 4-1 friendly victory against local amateur side AFC ’34 last Wednesday.

The trial was Adu’s third of 2014, following short trials with Blackpool in February and Stabaek in June. Adu last played for EC Bahia in Brazil’s second division, though he was released last December following the end of the season.
