See article below. It's pretty enlightening.

I remember when Freddy first appeared in Football Manager aged 14 for DC. It got me and my mates curious to see what this boy had to offer. We would look him up on youtube every now and then. The last I really heard of him was when he was playing at Benfica.

Seems he's had an odd career. High regarded at times, but then shat on at other times. I am sure someone will snap him up.

I think his story is one of how brutal football can be. It gets a lot deeper than oh look he's not doing anything so he's not good. Well anyway, unlike most people I wish him good luck!

Didn't he have a preset a few years ago on PES? That means he must still have a future! I'd like to see him play in England to be honest. Maybe a club like Aston Villa (Guzan) or Sunderland (Altidore) could pick him up? :-)

His age has always been disputed though

Heard that about his age a few times alright, could be a case of when he hit his peek in championship manager aged 14 he was really 21 explaining why he was so good. Although i doubt it he physically looks like a 12 year old. Should have stayed in the MLS abit longer imo rather than moving to Benfica.

It's sad because he had so much potential and hype but seems it all got to much for him at young age. never got to the level that was expected.

I'd like to see him playing in English or Scottish leagues.
