Freddy Adu: Blackpool will be a ‘dream come true’

The American of Ghanaian parentage is looking up to the day he will pen a deal in England and believes his trial at Blackpool at the moment could be the catalyst

Ghanaian-born American striker Freddy Adu is impressed with the “very intense” training at Blackpool, where he is being assessed for a possible deal.

He said “that is the kind of training” he needs as a player to revive his career after being released by Brazilian side Bahia.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the once-touted forward said “it will be a dream come true” to play in England but he is not in a rush although he remains hopeful that his trial with the English Championship side will yield dividend.

In this video on the Seasiders’ YouTube channel, Adu opens up about the highs and lows of his unique career that has seen him play in the US, Turkey, Brazil and Greece. He talks about why he decided to turn a professional and how he wishes to correct past mistakes to get his career back on track.
