Sarota set to depart BrisbanePosted: May 22, 2015
Adam Sarota has seemingly played his last game for Brisbane Roar after he concluded his season long loan from FC Utrecht after today’s training session.
It was originally assumed the 26 year old would make his final appearance against Villarreal on June 3rd. however he will now go on a break before returning to pre-season training in the Netherlands where he will be fighting for a spot in the first team once again.
Sarota, who arrived in Brisbane rehabbing his previously injured knee, struggled with injury and consistency this season and as a result was limited to just the 14 appearances (12 start, 2 sub), primarily as a backup for Luke Brattan in the holding midfield role.
All up the former youth team product who was first sold in 2010 has made 29 appearances for Brisbane Roar (22 start, 7 sub), after first making his debut in Round 9 of the 2008-09 season.
Sarota’s departure is hardly unexpected, as it was always assumed he’d be returning to the Netherlands. Brisbane have still got plenty of depth in midfield with Brattan, McKay, Lustica, Clut, Broich and youngsters Luke Pavlou and Ben Litfin waiting in the wings, however it’s possible they may look to bring somebody in with a bit more experience.
For now though, best of luck to Adam as he attempts to re-start his European career and get back into the Socceroos setup.
