Americans Abroad weekend preview: Adams and Aaronson start their careers at Leeds United, and more


Leeds United fought relegation to the English Premier League last season and with the arrival of US men’s national team midfielders Tyler Adams and Brenden Aaronson in Jesse Marsch’s squad, the Lilywhites will be tough for anyone in the new campaign.

Adams and Aaronson will both push for competitive debuts for Leeds United on Saturday, with Wolves traveling to Elland Road in the season opener. Adams recorded 36 appearances in all competitions for RB Leipzig last season before earning a permanent transfer to reunite with Marsch in Yorkshire. The USMNT midfielder will have big shoes to fill this season with Kalvin Phillips joining Manchester City, but familiarity with his manager should play a key role for Adams.

Aaronson also moved to England in the summer, securing his own permanent transfer from Red Bull Salzburg. The former Philadelphia Union hometown player had his best season yet as a professional player, tallying six goals and 10 assists in 41 combined appearances for Salzburg last season. Aaronson is also reunited with his former manager at Marsch, having enjoyed a successful debut campaign in Austria with the 48-year-old in 2020-21.

Elsewhere in England, Christian Pulisic and Chelsea visit Everton in the league while Chris Richards hopes to make his debut against Arsenal. Zack Steffen and Daryl Dike headline the USA contingent in the EFL Championship.

In Germany, Ricardo Pepi and Jordan Pefok will battle for goals this season as the USMNT hitting duo begin their league season. Gio Reyna and Borussia Dortmund host Bayer Leverkusen in the best Bundesliga showdown of the weekend.

In Italy, Gianluca Busio and Andrija Novakovich headline four American first-team players in Venezia.

In France, Tim Weah and Erik Palmer-Brown start their season in the league against Auxerre and Montpellier respectively.

Elsewhere, Reggie Cannon and Boavista kick off their league season in Portgual against Portimonense. Richie Ledezma and Cole Bassett begin their Eredivisie league schedule. Cameron Carter-Vickers and Celtic visit Ross County in Scottish league action.
