American Freddy Adu is currently in Denmark training with Superliga club Randers where he impressed club officials in a reserve match on Monday.

The attacking midfielder's career continues to be a nomadic one as Adu has yet to even come close to featuring for Greek club Aris during the current campaign.

Adu joined the club in January of this year on-loan from Portuguese club Benfica.

In an effort to keep himself in game-playing shape, the Maryland native traveled to Denmark where he is currently practicing with the Randers.

The club confirmed that Adu did play in a reserve match on Monday.

"Monday [Freddy] played a match for our reserves and he did well, he had two shots on the inside post," confirmed Randers media spokesman Ib Rasmussen to YA.

However Rasumussen went on to clarify though that the former DC United man is not on trial.

"Freddy is not trialing with Randers FC, he's just keeping himself fit by training with our Premier League squad," concluded Rasmussen.

It seems to me that where ever he goes, when he's in the games he always produces, given enough time. What do people have against Adu.

I think it is his vision. Wayne Gretzky was a great hockey player because he could see plays before they happened and get into position to help his team. Adu seems to wait for things to happen and then gambles that his skill will never let him down, as a result, he is guilty of bad giveaways in situations with no support, not being in a good support position for teammates and generally looking like he is lost most of the time.

I heard it's that he's got great technical skills, but his football brain is underdeveloped. Lots of the coaches say he is miles ahead technically, but that kids in their academies make better decisions; and that they would recommend he go back to an academy for a couple years and relearn the game if possible.

Then there's his playing style. He's not really fast enough to be a pure winger, but he's not quite mature enough to be the team's main playmaker. So he doesn't really see much time off the bench. That said, he looked good at Benfica when they played him. I thought he was coming along nicely there, they really screwed up their own investment by shipping him out.

Can anyone really tell me what is wrong with this guy? Is it his work rate, his attitude, is he a club house cancer or what? How can any one player spend so much time with several different clubs and barely get a look?

I'm glad, but what does this all mean? If he is just training with Randers, is there any interest brewing before the January transfer window? I'm guessing that Aris would like to send him out, right?
