DAVID SMITH - Friday, August 8, 2014
Freddy Adu will likely see action for his new team FK Jagodina on Saturday, as the team hosts Mladost Lucani in the opening to the Serbian Jelen SuperLiga season.

Jagodina kicks off their 2014-15 season with one of the more recognizable faces of American soccer over the last decade, having signed former phenom Freddy Adu to the team during the summer.

Adu has featured regularly for the team in the pre-season, and should be ready to contribute to their attack against recently-promoted Mladost Lucani.

After the two Belgrade powerhouses of the league, Roter Stern and Partizan, Jagodina were the best of the rest last season, finishing in third place on a total of 48 points.

This was enough to send the team to their third straight trip to the Europa League qualifying rounds, where they were quickly dispatched in the second round by Romanian team CFR Cluj by a 1-0 aggregate scoreline in early-July.

Their opponents Mladost Lucani were champions of the second-tier Prva Liga last season, and are making their first appearance in the top division since the 2007-08 season when they were relegated for financial reasons.

Jagodina head coach Mladen Dodić will be without Croatian new arrival Ivan Aleksić as his official paperwork is being completed, and could be without midfielder Mile Savković and defender Dajan Šimac, both of whom are questionable.

Lucani are not reporting any absences to their squad.
