Freddy Adu exclusive: 'I'm not ready to give it up'

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno explains why Freddy Adu was unable to turn his promise into an illustrious professional career.
Freddy Adu isn't done with his playing career yet. He's working out and focusing on teaching kids to make the most of their potential.

Usain Bolt a target for U.S. second-tier club Las Vegas Lights

USL side Las Vegas Lights FC has confirmed it has an interest in signing eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt, but his wage demands are prohibitive.
