Freddy Adu to attempt comeback with Swedish club Osterlen

Freddy Adu is returning to the field.

The one-time phenom is ending a two-year playing hiatus to sign with Osterlen FF in Sweden’s third tier. According to Swedish reports, he’ll join the club next month. It will be his first team since USL’s Las Vegas Lights, where he spent the 2018 season. 

Adu’s career, since stepping to the spotlight as a 14-year-old with D.C. United in 2004 and conducting commercials with Pelé, has been a whirlwind. Now 31, his career has included stops at various levels in the U.S., Portugal, France, Greece, Turkey, Brazil, Serbia and Finland. He has been coaching at the youth level in his home state of Maryland but is headed back to Scandinavia for another shot.
