BRIAN SCIARETTA - Tuesday, July 12, 2011
After spending the past two season with Portuguese club Vitoria Guimaraes where he failed to see any first team playing time, Kamani Hill is currently on a trial with FC Brasov of Romania's first division.

Hill, 25, turned professional in 2006 when he played with Bundesliga club Vfl Wolfsburg and made nine appearances with the first team before heading to Vitoria Guimaraes in 2009.

Hill will now begin to resurrect his career in Romania with FC Brasov and the club will decide in the coming days if they will sign the Berkeley, California native.

"The player Kamani Hill is on trial at our club," FC Brasov press officer Adi Marica told YA. "At the moment he is in Portugal with the team. The couch will decide in few days if he remains to FC Brasov."

yeah, I totally agree. we'll see how gooch does this year. There is definitley a serious prejudice against american players in southern europe! Kamani should really just come back to the MLS and try his skills out there- i think he will have more more success than in struggeling european clubs

I think US players should stay away from Portuguese team, there's an obvious prejudice against US players. Hill actually made it to the first team 9 nines for Vfl Wolfsburg which is a better team than Vitoria Guimaraes. Freddy Adu played well the few times he was allowed to play for Benfica, but somehow ended on the bench and then loaned to 2nd divison team Belenenses that decided he was not good enough to play at all for them, same story for other US players on other teams. Portuguese Coaches and Teams obvioulsy see US players has low grade no matter what.
