Columbus Crew Coach: Adi Is One Of The MLS Best Strikers

By Adeboye Amosu:

 Columbus  Crew head coach, Gregg Berhalter has showered encomiums on Nigeria forward, Fanendo Adi  after the striker hit the winner for Portland Timbers in the 2-1 win against his team in their Major League Soccer opening day clash, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

The prolific striker who scored 19 times to help Timbers win the MLS Cup last season scored the decisive goal 11 minutes from time.


And despite his side going down to another defeat against the Timbers who defeated them in the final of the MLS Cup last term, Berhalter was full of praise for the former Ukraine- based hitman who has been invited by Nigeria's caretaker boss, Samson Siasia for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations Cup double header against Egypt later this month.

"How many guys are like Adi in the league," Berhalter asked during his interaction with the media after the game.

"Listen, he is a big, big boy. He uses his body really well and I like said, there is not too many guys in the league like him."

Adi joined Portland Timbers on loan from Danish side, FC Copenhagen on May 13, 2014 and the deal was made permanent the following month after his impressive showing for the club.

He settled down well at Timbers netting a pair of braces in his first two starts for the club.

He once had stints in Slovakia with AS Trecin as well as  Metalurh Donestk, Dynamo Kiev and Tavriya all in the Ukranian League.
