Philadelphia Union head coach John Hackworth suggests that talented forward Freddy Adu could still return to the club next season.The 23-year olds future at PPL Park is in doubt after he started just over half of the Union’s 34 MLS matches during the 2012 season but Hackworth is of the belief that the former whizkid will be wearing the gold and blue of Philly in 2013.“I definitely think there’s a chance Freddy will be back,” Hackworth said. “Freddy and me continue to talk about our options going forward.”He added: “He’s a young player that has a ton of potential. Everyone knows that. Nobody knows that more than I do. And nobody believes in him as much as I do.“But the reality is he has to focus and he has to change some things in order for him to reach that full potential. And that’s what this club needs. We don’t want any part of a player that doesn’t understand all of those demands.” The game is about opinions. Make yours heard!

Portland Timbers owner Merritt Paulson admits it will be the coaching staff and not he who makes the decision on Kris Boyd’s future. Portland Timbers owner Merritt Paulson admits it will be the coaching staff and not he who makes the decision on Kris Boyd’s future.The former Middlesbrough and Rangers striker had a disappointing debut MLS season with just seven goals as he was in and out of the starting line-up.There were also some injury concerns for Boyd, who joined the Timbers as a Designated Player in January, and now Paulson admits some decisions need to be made on the attacker who is contracted for another season.“Clearly we didn’t expect Kris not to be starting all the time,” Paulson told MLSsoccer.com. “And I would have had his goals, if I were predicting, higher than they were.“(General manager) Gavin (Wilkinson) and (head coach) Caleb (Porter) have got to work that out with Kris.“I’m sure they will, and they’ll keep me in the loop as to the plans. I’ve always said I’ll let the soccer guys make those decisions, and I keep them accountable for those decisions.” The game is about opinions. Make yours heard!
