Journeyman Adu planning to 'get the smile back' in Finland with KuPS

Freddy Adu is determined to rediscover his love for soccer after joining the 11th club of his professional career.

The former US soccer prodigy signed with Finland side Kuopion Palloseura (KuPS) on the weekend and is hoping he can get back to his mindset of his early playing days and simply enjoy the game.

Adu Tweeted:

The former DC United, Real Salt Lake, Benfica, Monaco and Philadelphia Union forward has struggled for game time over the past few years with failed spells in Brazil with Bahia and Serbia with FK Jagodina but is hoping he can get going in the Finnish Veikkausliga (top flight).

KuPS, who finished seventh last season, kickstart the 2015 season with a trip to last term's third-placed side Ilves on April 12.
