Benfica starlet Freddy Adu reports that he is satisfied with the personal progress being made since arriving from MLS during the summer.
The teen U.S. international has mostly played off the bench this season, but has had some success and isn’t ready to rock the boat.
“It is a very competitive environment, and everyone is a good player,” Adu told the New York Times. “No one’s place is guaranteed.”
“You have to come to work every day, and that’s what makes you a better player – constant competition.”
“Hopefully, I’ll get in the starting 11 sooner rather than later,” he added. “But right now, I’m happy with my development.”
