[AMERICANS ABROAD] Harald Gaertner, the sports director of German second division club Ingolstadt, said Freddy Adu played "quite decently" in a scrimmage against Offenbach. The 21-year-old Adu has joined Ingolstadt at its training camp in Turkey in his latest attempt to find a new team.

“We simply want to have a look at him,” Gaertner told the Donau Kurier. “That he’s come to us shows that he wants to prove himself. In the test game against Offenbach he played quite decently.”

Adu left MLS for in 2007 for Portugal’s Benfica, which has since loaned him out to Monaco, Belenenses and Aris.

Adu scored three goals in the 32 league appearances during his three seasons in Europe. Since the 2009-10 season that he spent with Greece’s Aris, Adu has been on trial with Danish Club Randers and Swiss club Sion.

Adu played 45 minutes in the game against German third division club Offenbach.

"He gave an effort,” said Ingolstadt coach Benno Mohlmann, “but we need to see how effective his playing style is. We need players for the second half of the season who can make an immediate impact.”

Ingolstadt, which was promoted to the second division this season, is in second-to-last place, six points deep in the relegation zone.
