Lazio Goalkeeper Adamonis: “I’m Learning a Lot From Reina & Strakosha”

Lazio goalkeeper Marius Adamonis highlighted how much he is learning in this summer’s pre-season training camp.

Speaking in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster Lazio Style Radio (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 24-year-old Lithuanian shot-stopper first discussed the work in the pre-season training retreat.

This training camp is very hard and with Mister Grigioni the work is always difficult. 

The first friendly went well and the important thing is that we expressed the tactics we are working on every day. It went well and I blocked the ball twice.

He spoke about the work with the Biancocelesti’s goalkeeper coaches this summer.

Coach Nenci is a big name and we are working very well with him. He has worked at some of Europe’s top clubs and it’s really great to train with him. 

It’s the fifth year that I’ve met Mr. Grigioni and I’m sorry that the time to work with him is limited. But he knows me very well.

Adamonis was unsure what his future would hold.

I don’t know what my future will be for next year. You have to ask the club.

The 24-year-old Lithuanian goalkeeper commented on his time with Salernitana, who achieved promotion to Serie A last season. 

I got on very well with Salernitana, it was a great group and I had the chance to play a few games and I was ready. 

The goal, however, was to reach the Serie A, then the goals of the team.

Finally, Adamonis discussed his growth as both a player and as a man.

As a man I feel I have grown a lot. I got married and I’m about to become a father. I feel as old as Pepe Reina. I’m learning a lot from Reina and Strakosha.

You can learn everything from them, movements, technique, thinking. I still have to improve my speed and I have to work a lot on my technique.
