MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Defender Gale Agbossoumonde, who debuted for the U.S. national team against South Africa in November, is set to join Swedish club Djurgarden on a six-month loan.

Agbossoumonde, 19, has expressed his displeasure about being left in limbo by the management firm Traffic that owns his contract. He spent the first part of the 2010 season on loan to Portuguese club Braga but could only train with Portuguese second division club Estoril for the latter part of the year.

He grew up in Syracuse after being born in Togo and spending time in a refugee camp in Benin.

He played for the USA at the 2009 Under-20 World Cup and is expected to be a key player for the U.S. U-20s this year.

    Traffic, what a joke of an organization. Not coincidentally, Clavijo the Clown is part of it.
