The former Fulham player was unveiled to the fans of the Portuguese club side on Tuesday afternoon.
Speaking to KickoffNigeria.com, the player stated that he was pleased
to have signed with a club that would see him play regularly.
"It is not good for the career of any serious player just to sit on the
bench of a so called big club without playing regularly. This
invariably cost me a shirt while trying out with the Olympic team,"
Kareem told the website.
"Despite putting everything I had into training, Siasia still favoured the players that were visible for their club sides then.
"So, I am happy joining Gil Vicente because I have been assured of
regular action week in, week out. The deal was finalised between my
club, Sporting Braga and Gil on Saturday morning so I couldn't go
straight into Gil's squad that won their first home game 2-1 against
Feirense on Saturday. "
"I am very sure and determined to play a good match this weekend when I
will feature for Gil in my first league match for the team. The
important thing is for me to be playing regularly. I hope I will do the
same as last season when I helped Trofense to gain promotion to the top
division in Portugal," Kareem added.
