Real Salt Lake general manager Steve Pastorino knows the giants of Europe are watching, but says he intends to have Freddy Adu wearing the team’s shirt for as long as he can.
The US wonder boy arrived in a trade from D.C. United over the weekend.
“Freddy is a dynamic, brilliant young player who is going to have some opportunities overseas,” Pastorino told reporters.
“We just hope that we can postpone those a little while and that you can bring a couple of championships here to RSL first before you go anywhere.”
Concluded Pastorino, “We wouldn’t have entered into this transaction without the belief that Freddy is going to be a part of this organization for quite a while to come.”
