Emilijus Zubas is a Lithuanian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for GKS Bełchatów in the Polish Ekstraklasa, on loan from the Latvian Higher League club Daugava Rīga.

Daugava Rīga[edit]

Before the start of the 2013 Latvian Higher League season Zubas signed a long-term contract with Daugava Rīga moving from the Lithuanian A Lyga club FK Ekranas. With Artūrs Vaičulis filling the first keeper's spot, Zubas was loaned out to the Polish Ekstraklasa club GKS Bełchatów. Despite remarkable individual performance his club was relegated from the Ekstraklasa and Zubas returned to Daugava Rīga. For the second half of the 2013 season he was loaned out to the Cypriot First Division club AEK Larnaca.[1] Before the start of the 2014 season Zubas was loaned to the Danish Superliga club Viborg FF. In July 2014 Zubas was recalled from loan and filled in Daugava's entry for the UEFA Europa League match against Aberdeen.[2] Following the match he was yet again sent out on loan, returning to his former club GKS Bełchatów.[3]

GKS Bełchatów[edit]

After loan move to Poland in January 2013 he quickly became one of the best goalkeepers in the league. Although GKS Bełchatów won in the spring round up 25 points, they were relegated. Zubas repeatedly saved the team with spectacular parades and was called-up to the Lithuanian national team. He was also chosen as the best goalkeeper of the 2012–13 Ekstraklasa season.

Successes[edit]

2x A Lyga (2011, 2012) with FK Ekranas.

1x Lithuanian Football Cup (2011) with FK Ekranas.
