FK Žalgiris Vilnius officially signed a new player – Lithuanian National team striker Simonas Stankevičius. The player was transferred from English Premier League leaders Leicester City.

“I think I have been in England for far too long and now I need a change in my career. I want to play in another level, not for youth teams. I want to play technical football, not just “kick and run” football and I think FK Žalgiris can give it to me.

I had a lot of conversations with team’s head coach Valdas Dambrauskas and he told me about cluub’s vision and his thoughts on what will be required from the players, so I am excited to work with him. I think it will be the best way for me to grow”, - said S. Stankevičius.
