4. AMERICANS ABROAD: Californian Kamani Hill signs with Bundesliga's Wolfsburg;
Wolff in Munich
Californian Kamani Hill, 20, has signed a two-and-a-half year contract with
German First Division club Wolfsburg with an option for an additional year.
"He's very far along for his age," said Wolfsburg coach Klaus Augenthaler. "We
will do everything we can to make him successful for us."
Augenthaler, 1990 World Cup champion as a player for Germany, was the Bayer
Leverkusen coach when Landon Donovan made his ill-fated return to Leverkusen in
Hill, born and raised in Berkeley, Calif., played youth club ball for Marin
United and for Marin FC before playing two seasons (2004 & 2005) at UCLA.
U.S. World Cup veteran and Kansas City attacker Josh Wolff is on trial at German
Second Division club Munich 1860, home of compatriot Gregg Berhalter, and may be
on the verge of signing.
"He's a great guy," says club general manager Stefan Reuter. "Totally loose and
open, like most Americans."
Wolff scored three goals in a practice game last week.
