Ex-Ghana youth star Sadick Adams has revealed how he suffered racist abuse on the pitch during his one-year stint with Serbian side FK Vojvodina.
Adams joined Vojvodina on a 12 months deal from Spanish side Athletico Madrid in 2009.
The 23-year-old, who currently plays for Albanian side FK Kukesi has admitted the racial abuse that he suffered in Serbia is the worst experience in his football career.
“I went through hell because of racism in Serbia. It was horrible to have this experience for a young African like me, only 20 years old then,” Adams is quoted by Espoirdufootball.
“I was alone in the middle of this racist hell. My family was in Ghana and I thought that I had to be strong to be able to help, particularly financially.
“But beyond the racism, I was not paid by the club, no salary, no bonus, nothing so I had to cancel my contract to move to Tunisia.”
Adams was touted as the next big thing after he was recognized by World Soccer magazine as one of the 50 Most Exciting Teenagers in 2007 but he flattened to deceive following some controversial moves.
