Childhood prodigy Freddy Adu suggested that playing in Brazil has been a dream of his and he is delighted to be getting his career with new club Bahia underway.
The 23-year old American forward recently arrived at Bahia in a trade deal which saw World Cup winner Kleberson going the other way to Philadelphia Union and he posted on Twitter that he is happy to have found a place to return to his former teenage glories.
Below are a series of tweets from Adu over the past few weeks:
