Adu says all's fine in Philly

The Philadelphia Union not explaining why Freddy Adu didn't accompany the team to its 2-0 loss at the New York Red Bulls -- calling it a "team matter" -- spurred speculation of a trade. Both Union interim coach John Hackworth and Adu laughed off the rumor, reports Dave Zeitlin.

“I wasn’t paying attention but then I was told by a friend of mine,” Adu said. “I was just laughing because people don’t know why I wasn’t with the team in New York and they started speculating. I get along with my coaches and teammates. There’s no problem here at all. This is where I want to be, for sure."

As for the "team matter" that kept him home last weekend, Adu said, “I think it was a little bit of a misunderstanding and I just have to move on from that. I’m ready to go. I’m good with my coaches and teammates, so all is good.”

Philly hosts New England on Sunday.
