While the latest saga of his career might be on the more obscure side, Freddy Adu is finding some success in Finland so far.
The 25-year-old American started and played 74 minutes minutes for Kuopion Palloseura (KuPS), and it turned into the club’s second straight win of the season. A 71st minute goal from Saku Savolainen handed KuPS a 1-0 win against VPS on Thursday to take the club to fifth place in the Finnish Veikkausliiga.
Adu started last week in KuPS’s 1-0 win against KTP over the weekend, though he was subbed off in the 65th minute. He has not featured on the score sheet so far, but Adu might get another chance on Sunday against PK Keski-Uusimaa in a Finnish League Cup game.
Adu joined KuPS at the end of March. It is his 10th different club to play for over an 11 year period.
What do you make of Adu’s performances so far? How do you expect him to fare in Finland?
