Adam Sarota (born 28 December 1988) is an Australian footballer who plays for FC Utrecht in the Dutch Eredivisie.[1]

Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Brisbane Roar[edit]

Sarota was named National Youth League Player of the Year for 2008-2009.[2] As a result of his solid performances for the Brisbane Roar youth team, he was rewarded with a first team contract prior to the 2009-10 A-League season.[3] On 2 November 2008 he made his A-League debut for the Brisbane Roar against the Newcastle Jets.[4]

Utrecht[edit]

On 2 April 2010, along with fellow Roar players, Michael Zullo and Tommy Oar, Sarota joined Dutch side Utrecht on a three-year deal, in a collective transfer deal rumoured to be worth in excess of A$1.8 million.[5][6] On 22 July 2010, Adam made his Utrecht debut coming on in the 70th minute of their away draw to Tirana in the UEFA Europa League.[7]

International career[edit]

On 27 August 2010, it was reported Sarota had been invited to a training camp by the Polish Football Association. Sarota’s father, Tony, emigrated to Australia from Poland but said that whilst Poland was a possibility, the Socceroos were Sarota's preferred option.[8]

Sarota received his first Socceroos call up by coach Holger Osieck for a friendly match against Germany played on 27 March 2011. He made his international debut for Australia in August 2011, coming on as a substitute for FC Utrecht team-mate Michael Zullo in a win over Wales.
