Lazio-owned goalkeeper Marius Adamonis was unsure about his future after Salernitana’s promotion to Serie A.
Speaking in an interview as reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 24-year-old Lithuanian shot-stopper touched on his arrival at Lazio and subsequent move to Salernitana on loan.
It was my former Lithuanian agent who brought me here. I liked the Formello training centre straight away. My agent, however, told me I would be in the first-team squad but instead I was destined for the Primavera.
I wanted to leave because my dream was to play at the professional level. I didn’t know Serie B and I didn’t know Salernitana. Abroad, they only know about Italian football from the most important clubs, the ones in Serie A, for example.
He touched on his difficulties in the lower tiers of Italian football.
These two years have been very difficult. I went from debuting in Serie B to being the second-choice goalkeeper in Serie C. I didn’t want to go onto the pitch anymore, I was almost going to quit football.
Finally, Adamonis spoke about his future and what his decision will be.
I don’t know anything yet. Now I prefer to dedicate myself to my family and enjoy a bit of relaxation. We’ll think about the future soon, after the holidays.
The 24-year-old Adamonis, who is contracted to Lazio until 2022, has never made a first-team appearance for Lazio since signing for the club in the summer of 2016.
This campaign, the Lithuanian shot-stopper only made three appearances for Salernitana in their promotion-winning campaign, behind starting keeper Vid Belec in the pecking order.
In his three games this season, Adamonis did manage to keep three clean sheets but is unlikely to ever feature for Lazio, and so it’s likely that he will be sold by the Roman club this summer.
