MLS players training in Europe list
   November 16, 2011 (9:44 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post
 

Someone on twitter suggested keeping track of all these MLS players who are training in Europe this offseason, so I decided to keep this list, which I will update whenever a new name pops up.  So if you know of anyone I am missing, please leave the player and some kind of link to a news story on them training in Europe in the comments.

Here is who I can think of off the top of my head:

Juan Agudelo – VfB Stuttgart & Liverpool
Kyle Beckerman – Kaiserslautern
Bill Hamid – West Bromwich Albion
Sean Johnson – Everton
Perry Kitchen – SC Freiburg
Jeff Larentowicz – Bolton Wanderers
Zac MacMath – Everton
Amobi Okugo – SC Freiburg
Zach Pfeffer – TSG Hoffenheim
Tim Ream – West Bromwich Albion & Bolton Wanderers
Robbie Rogers – Kaiserslautern
Omar Salgado – Fulham
Brek Shea – Arsenal

    Or are you just keeping track of American MLS players?

  2. Trent Hill says:

    Other Luke, he’s keeping track of American MLS players, yes.

  3. Other Luke says:

    Jeff Larentowicz ? http://sbn.to/rBCL0Y

    Thanks guys, added Larentowicz and Johnson to the list.

  5. Andy says:

    They may not be “trials”, but you can’t tell me that it doesn’t excite you to see this list! #Yanksarecoming

  6. Trent Hill says:

    It’s good for them to be able to train at a high level at these various clubs. While they may not technically be “trials”, they operate as such on a lower level. If they impress the right people, they will get trials.

    Even if nothing comes of it–training at a high level during what would otherwise be the offseason is great news–especially since it’s young players. Johnson and Shea’s trials are particularly impressive.

    Here is a photo of Henry training with Arsenal with Brek Shea in the background -> http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-r8J7XW7Ig7o/TsVLq7yrCBI/AAAAAAAACnw/KyIBGf634-c/s400/HenryArsenal-Shea.jpg

    Zach Pfeffer of the Union is doing two weeks at Hoffenheim (he did this last year as well, right before he signed a contract). I have not heard of any other Union players practicing overseas.

  9. Ian says:

    I don’t know if we’re still counting Andy Najar as a US prospect but he’s going to train with Tottenham.
