Sorry I'm ignorant on this one.
He started in MLS and had some early success. He has had a lot of trouble catching on in Europe. He was initially brought over by a pretty big Spanish team but the coach was fired very soon after and he was out of favor with the new guy. He is currently on loan from his Greek team with a 2nd division team in Turkey and has played very well. I believe he has 4 goals and 5 assists this season albeit in a not very well thought of division. The hope is he has matured since the US doesn't have a great goal scorer on the roster and he is still only 21.
