MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Brazilian Joel Santana has worked with a lot of players during his 43-year coaching career -- 31 stops at 17 different clubs, plus a stint with the South Africa national team in the three years leading up to the 2010 World Cup -- so he should be forgiven if he didn't realize Freddy Adu was at Bahia, the Brazilian club he joined for the fourth time last week.

Asked at a press conference about Adu's remark that Santana spoke good English, the Brazilian asked who the reporter was talking about. Informed by the club press officer the reporter was referring to Adu, Santana asked, "We have a gringo here?"

1x Al Wasl, United Arab Emirates
4x Vasco da Gama, Brazil
1x Al-Hilal, Saudi Arabia

1x Al Nasr, Saudi Arabia
