Forward Freddy Adu, midfielder Michael Farfan and defender Amobi Okugo will continue to hone their skills in the offseason with European clubs Galatasaray in Turkey and SC Freiberg of the German Bundesliga, the club announced today.  Adu will depart today for a two week training stint with Galatasaray, while Farfan and Okugo will travel to Germany to train with SC Freiburg. 

This marks the second straight season that Adu, Farfan and Okugo have trained with European clubs in the offseason.  Adu spent two weeks with Spanish side Rayo Vallecano last season, while Farfan traveled to Sunderland last January.  Okugo spent time with Freiburg last December. 

The trio is the latest in a string of Union players traveling to Europe for offseason training, joining Zac MacMath who spent time with Everton, Cristhian Hernandez who was with Real Sociedad and Jimmy McLaughlin who is currently with TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.
