[AMERICANS ABROAD]Stability is something Freddy Adu hasn't known in his career. Brazilian club Bahia is his ninth club in the last six years and Eduardo Barroca, named Bahia interim coach on Monday, is his fifth coach in the last year.
Bahia fired veteran coach Joel Santana after a 7-3 loss to Vitoria at home on Sunday in the first leg of the Campeonato Baiano final. Santana had taken over two weeks after Adu was signed in March.
Coaching changes are nothing new at Bahia. It has made 15 in the last five years. Among its recent coaches are former Jamaica national team coach Rene Simoes and former Brazil great Roberto Falcao.
