Hahnemann: Man Utd deal for Adu would be a huge boost for the game in the USA

Hahnemann told the Sunday Times: “It would legitimise everything. It would enhance our credibility over here and transform the sport back home.

“When you are growing up in the States, you see soccer players making $30,000 a year, and American footballers making $9m. If one of our guys was making millions in the Premiership, it would change the way footballers are perceived in the States.”
