Antoni Lluís Adrover Colom, commonly known as Tuni (born 14 June 1982), is a Spanish professional footballer who plays mainly as an attacking midfielder.

He amassed La Liga totals of 106 games and four goals over the course of seven seasons, all with Mallorca.

Club career[edit]

Born in Sóller, Majorca, Balearic Islands, Tuni made his professional debuts with hometown RCD Mallorca's first team during the 2002–03 season, appearing in five games and scoring one goal. His first La Liga match came on 8 December 2002 in a 1–5 home loss against Real Madrid,[1] and he would be loaned the following campaign to second division side UD Salamanca.

After four seasons in which his role was irregular (65 appearances from 2004 to 2006, 27 the following two), Tuni was loaned again, to second level's Hércules CF for the duration of 2008–09.[2] Returned to Mallorca for the subsequent top flight campaign, he suffered a severe knee injury which limited his participation to just nine games out of 38.[3]

In late January 2011 Tuni was loaned to Catalan club Gimnàstic de Tarragona on a six-month loan,[4] and contributed with seven starts – 560 minutes in total – as the team narrowly avoided division two relegation. In July he became a free agent, and signed a permanent contract with Nàstic.

On 11 January 2013 Tuni signed for Iraklis Thessaloniki F.C. in Greece, joining several compatriots at the second division team.[5]
