Wasn't he meant to be the Michael Jordan of soccer (five years ago at least). What's happened to him? What went wrong?

He was unjustly thrown into the spotlight. He's okay. Plays in Philadelphia with 17 appearances for the USMNT.

Nothing went wrong, he was thrown into things way to early and didnt develop into the super start people thought. He was still a very good player but just not what some people expected them to be.

AZ would disagree and Jozy is quite a bit better than Adu.

Whos AZ? And Altidore played 9 games for Villarreal and scored one goal, played 28 games for Hull City and scored one goal, played 12 games for Bursaspor and scored one goal lol. And hes only scored 13 goals for the US, pretty average.

What happened was they thrust him into a second rate senior league at an age when he should have been in a proper UEFA academy.
