Adu finished at Belenenses

[AMERICANS ABROAD] What does Freddy Adu do now? The Portuguese sports daily Record reports that the 20-year-old American is headed back to Benfica, the club that twice sent him off on loan. The move comes after new Belenenses coach Toni has decided to get rid of Adu and Brazilian Igor (sent back to Sevilla) to reduce the size of his roster.

Adu's response on Twitter: "dont worry my friends this was agreed upon a while ago. Never even met this new coach at Belenenses."

Adu made only three league appearances for last-place Belenenses.

The Lisbon club, which has one win in 14 games, named Toni as its new head coach, replacing Joao Carlos Pereira last week.

Belenenses hasn't won since the second game of the season, on Aug. 24.

The Lisbon club is Adu's third European club in three seasons at which he has seen limited playing time.
