Sarota sad but excited about leaving Brisbane Roar for FC Utrecht

Adam Sarota admits he is saddened at leaving the Brisbane Roar but excited about his opportunity with Dutch club FC Utrecht.

The 21-year old recently signed a three-year deal with the Eredivisie outfit and although he was keen to remain in Brisbane, knows that is was a chance he could not pass up.

"I wanted to stay at the Roar, but at the end of the day it's a better move for me football wise," Sarota said.

"For me to further my football career I have to move overseas and see what happens."

Sarota admitted that things had happened very quickly for him last season.

"When I stop and think about it, it's really been a crazy year," he added.

"At the start of the year I was only coming off the bench every now and again, but when (Roar coach) Ange Postecoglou came in, I played the last nine or ten games of the season.

"And now I've got this deal in Holland so it's been a very big year for me."
