Ehh, What Are Ya' Gonnadu?

Former child star Freddy Adu to Portugal:
LISBON (AFP) - Freddy Adu, the most recognisable name in the Major League Soccer, was on Monday poised to sign a five year deal with Portuguese side Benfica.

The Ghana-born Adu, 18, was twice named an MLS All-Star - in 2004 and 2006 - helped DC United capture the 2004 MLS Cup during his rookie season.

According to press reports here Benfica have already paid out 1.5 million euros to recruit the United states international.
Must have been a prepared copy from 2006. Most recognisable name in MLS? What about this guy named Beckham?
Pele insists David Beckham is more of a 'pop star' than a footballer and has urged the Los Angeles Galaxy superstar to focus totally on his sport if he is to succeed in the United States.

The former England captain wants to raise the profile of the game in the US after signing a five-year contract with the Galaxy, though his on-field impact has so far been limited by an ankle injury suffered on national team duty last month.
Beckham hasn't played since the 12-odd minutes against Chelsea. I'm gonna say that drugs are to blame for the headline. A more hopeful, domestic article on Adu here.
