[AMERICANS ABROAD] Freddy Adu has been in Denmark for a week training with top-flight club Randers, for whose reserve team he played on Monday
in a 4-0 loss to Viborg's reserves.
Since 2007, Adu has been under contract with Portugal's Benfica, which has loaned him out to French Ligue 1 club Monaco, Belenenses (Portugal) and most recently Aris (Greece). Swiss club Sion passed on Adu after a week-long trial in July.
Randers spokesman Ib Rasmussen told The Associated Press that Adu's stint with the club was "only to allow him to train and stay in shape."
In the reserve game on Monday, Adu hit the post twice.
After playing 11 games for Benfica, Adu saw little action for his loan teams: Monaco (9 games), Belenenses (3) and Aris (9). He scored three league goals in those three years.
In his MLS career, Adu played 98 games, scoring 12 goals and making 19 assists in three and a half MLS seasons. He played a small role in D.C. United’s 2004 title win. He moved to Real Salt Lake in 2007 but left halfway through the season for Benfica on a $2 million transfer fee.
