    Swedish teams like many Scandinavian teams have some of the smallest budgets in Europe. Even smaller than Eastern European teams. That's why it's rare to see some of the marquee players like top Brazilian and Argentinian players in their leagues . As a matter of fact, some teams in Africa notably in Tunisia, Egypt and South Africa might have larger budgets. Top players in their league like Abrahimovic and even our own Warris have to move elsewhere to make money. Their league attracts "beginner" foreign players. I'm glad though that he stood his ground. He has to be paid what he deserves.

    Sometimes I wonder why some forumites just comments by commenting sake! I live in sweden here and swedish are well known for paying the right feels or wages to players according to their potential. If the above mentioned teams sees he Adiyah as a key player; guys trust me! They will be willing to negotiate with him.He Adiyah hasn't done anything special with all the clubs he has been playing. I assume that, he's letting the free agent thing to deceive him by demanding higher wages. I'm not trying to disrespect Adiyah but if he really believe in his potential; he'll rather be concern on bonus and performance related add ons. There are bunch of average players like Adiyah himself over here in sweden.

    @ spellBound, dude u don't make no sense. They trying to take advantage of his situation and I'm glad he stood his ground. It's better to be a free agent than to be tied down to a stupid contract. A case in point is Asamoah Gyan in Sunderland. Your ignorance is astonishing to me dude.

    this is why some players retire prematurely. u snub a defending champ team while you have limited options. don't be too big headed. i don't know the terms of the offer, but surely a chance to play and improve your form to gain better deals in the future is better than languishing away as a free agent is it not??? rome was not conquered in 1 day mate.... u had your chance after u-20 and could not live up to the hype. its time to rebuild, not stubbornly stumble on..

    Why are you guys defending him like this? The world cup squad will be selected at the start of may, now is the time to be hungrier than ever for playing time in order to be recognised by AA, but instead Adiyiah is allowing greed to be his downfall by turning down the bloody champions of the same Sweden that Waris conquered. He is not even good enough for me to want to see his face at the WC. Bottom line is his mind is on his wages, not performing well now, so as to perform well for Ghana then attract a new suitor.
