Tuni joins Nàstic with parting shot at Laudrup
Antoni Lluís Adrover Colom, known as Tuni, has left Real Mallorca to join Nàstic on a six month loan deal. The left winger will not return to the club at the end of the six months, however, as his contract expires at the end of the season. The move ends his ten year professional stint with the club, after the local boy from Sóller came through the youth ranks.
The 28-year-old’s time with the club has come to a dismal end after failing to establish a place in the team following his cruciate ligament tear in early 2010 which he acknowledged in saying “I would’ve liked to have finished in a better way. My greatest wish was to finish my career in Mallorca, but it was not meant to be. Before I was injured I was playing well, but then the problems came.”
The winger also stated that he “appreciated the encouragement” he received whilst injured and thanked fans for the love he received for which he “will be eternally grateful” in particular reference to the cries of “Tuni, Tuni” in the game after his cruciate ligament tear after 15 minutes (in reference to his shirt number).
Parting shot at Laudrup
He didn’t leave, however, without sounding his frustration over his treatment by coach Michael Laudrup. “I’m annoyed because after my injury, I have not been given one opportunity. Everyone is this team all had a chance except me,” lamented the midfielder.
“I wanted to retire here, but if I have to leave I will. At Mallorca I’ve become disillusioned. I have suffered alot, but I’ve over the years it has been great and I’ve met many friends.”
