This sweet story is about a Lithuanian footballer called Auri.
He's from Lithuania a country far, far away, and where football hasn't he highest priority in terms of sport. But he, Auri, the biggest talent in many years or maybe even ever would change all that.
It was first at ten years Auri began playing football. He'd been playing all sorts of sports, such as swimming and basketball. But now he also became acquainted with the wonderful game of football.
Auri started at a small and poor football academy and his football career was at that point very far away. It took its time before his at that point undiscovered talent showed its real face. The academy treated him well, but things weren't really going his way in terms of a career of money, cars and girls. Auri were hopefull though. He kept on working his arse off!
The stepping stone
His father was a top-coach in handball and the family moved around a lot. Auri therefor had to skip the academy. The father had many connection to important people in the sporting world of Lithuania and he got young Auri a trial at the local club. Young Auri at the tender age of 15 took the chance with a humble smile and thanked his father and of course the manager of the club.
The big chance
His time at the club would show to be very good for young Auri. In one of his many appearences for the club's first team a scout saw Auri play. The scout was deeply impressed of this young player, who showed so great spirit and will to win. Auri had at that time played almost two seasons for the club. The scout offered him a meeting with the manager of Zalgiris, the biggest club in the country at that time. At the age of 17 Auri moved from a small local club to the biggest club in Lithuania. What a big move for our young hero.
More opportunities came
A few years later the 'Wall' had fallen and the players, who currently played in the dark east of Europe now had new opportunities. A still inexperienced Auri quickly felt the new opportunities. Many rich managers had spread their scouts out over all of the East of Europe. Auri didn't see the opportinity like many others would. 'Cause many players from east fled to the west, where the money was. That gave a huge empty 'room' in East European football and Auri took advantage off that. He became a first team player in Zalgiris and did also get his first cap at the Lithuanian NT. Things were really looking good for Auri at this point of his professional career.
The west was calling
Auri still enjoyed playing for Zalgiris and did also win the league championship. Twice in fact! But his ambitions were higher than this.
Although he wanted to move to a foreign club in the west, he actually moved to another club in Lithuania in Kaunas. Inkaras Grifas was the club, which Auri moved to although his higher expectations.
1995 was the year for Auri to make the impact of a move to a foreign club. His current club, Brøndby had drawn Grifas in the UEFA Cup that season. He'd apparently played a very good match, so good that Ebbe Skovdahl (coach at Brøndby in that period) chose to send a scout to Lithuania to watch Auri play a few league matches. All it took was two weeks before Auri had signed a contract with Brøndby.
Auri was happy
... and still is. He has experienced to win the titel 4 times (last time last season (2001/02)). He's now a cult figure among Brøndby fans. The reason? Well, the thing is, he's never scored for the club. He's played 125 matches for Brøndby and still hasn't scored one goal. Should I mention he's a left back? Well, it's still no way near an excuse!
It all started last season. Where the fans were chanting Auri on the score board. Very funny. He reacted at once and were actually honoured be the cheers.
Every time he just crosses the halfway line everybody cheers for him to score ... and he never does . He had the biggest chance in football to do it though. It was in a match against Vejle last season. We were already up 5-1 and the whole stadium screamed for him to take to penalty. He did ... but missed. Nobody were mad at him for missing. He just became a cult figure for us roud:.
I can't wait to see if he does it this season :hopefull:.
This is dedicated and honoured to our beloved hero, Aurelius Skarbalius aka Auri
