Sad end: Freddy Adu working as nightclub promoter?

Freddy Adu was once hailed as the next big thing in the US, and was set on course for a career at the highest level, but it appears he is now a nightclub promoter.

The 25-year old, whose career never quite took off, has been clubless after being released by Serbian side FK Jagodina two months ago. But he appears to have a Thursday night spot hosting at the Shadow Room in Washington, after the event was advertised on the club’s Facebook page.

This comes eleven years after ‘the next Pele’ as he was dubbed at the time, made his MLS debut at the raw age of 14.  Sadly, the Ghanaian-born forward has played just 59 minutes of competitive football since the end of the 2012 MLS season.

It remains to be seen if he will make a return to the field, after Blackpool refused to offer him a contract after training with them a year ago.
