Real Name: Fanendo Adi
HT: 6' 4" WT: 185
Age: 29 (10/10/1990)
Birthplace: Lagos, Nigeria
Hometown: Lagos, Nigeria

HOW ACQUIRED: Signed off waivers on January 27, 2020.

There aren’t many 6-foot-4 target strikers with the nimble feet of Fanendo Adi, making him attractive pickup for the Crew off of waivers. The tall, prototypical No. 9 is a true menace and Adi emerged as a goalscoring force for the Timbers, netting 54 goals over five MLS seasons (126 appearances), including back-to-back 16 goal seasons. After a disappointing season in Cincinnati, he reunites with his former coach Caleb Porter in Columbus.

INTERNATIONAL: Adi spent time in the Nigerian youth system with the Under-23 national team, last appearing in 2011. Adi was later called up to the full Nigeria national team for Africa Cup of Nations qualifying in March 2016, but did not make an appearance.

OUTSIDE MLS: Adi began his professional career in Slovakia before bouncing to five different clubs in Europe in three years, most notably with FC Copenhagen in Denmark, where he spent the first half of the 2013-14 season. Portland snagged him on a loan with an option to buy in May 2014, and the rest is history.
