D.C. United boss Peter Nowak has advised Manchester United trialist Freddy Adu to forget Old Trafford for now and spend a few seasons with an Eredivisie power.
“He’s a young kid and he needs matches,” the coach told the Guardian. “I think he should go to PSV or Ajax or somewhere they have a tradition of raising young players.”
“At a place like Ajax, the young kids come through together and they grow up together; the team is shaped around them.”
Adu has previously stated an admiration for the Amsterdam giants, but seems openly after a Premiership address for next season.
“In the biggest environment at the club with the biggest budget it will be hard for them to wait for him to develop,” opined Nowak. “I still feel he needs the minutes and the experience.”
“Does Freddy want to have to go to Watford on a rainy Wednesday where he’ll have 6’ 4” goons on his back all night? The Dutch league is a very technical league and he will be better suited for that at his age.”
