Albanians abroad

With memories of the golden years (80's) of the albanian football still fresh on her mind, Albania is now attempting to recreate its strong football legacy. As young players start making their names abroad, the future is looking bright for Albanian football!

Sadiku is literally a meme over there even though he was battling injuries during the time he was with them. Their fans might be toxic and very pro-slavdom/Serb but their media is even worse.

I'm gonna say this though... If Muci can thrive in Poland he can thrive anywhere. If he has success in Legia he can easily play in a top league.
Lets be real. Sadiku hasn't played for them in a few seasons, I doubt most fans will draw the connections or care. The hooligans can be a worrisome thing with their anti Albania/Kosovo ideology but with Covid he won't have to deal with that for some time. It's a bit sensationalized. He's also used of playing in Albania which in terms of professionalism is a step below Poland.

I care more about if he'll get in the starting lineup and play. If Legia is patient with him and gives him chances to prove himself this will be a decent move. If they can qualify for EL/CL next season this will be even better. But if he rots on the bench he's practically the next Hyka.

I have high hopes for him so I hope he does well.

To be fair Sadiku has truly been a meme over there and still remembered today. Super overhyped transfer, he came as the "Albanian Ferrari" and ended up being beyond dogshit. But in conclusion i think this is an overreaction, lol guy barely arrived there. He's there to play football not for war, give it some time.

Your argument is valid about fans on the stands, pandemic helps in this regard but i don't believe albanian born in 2001 in Tirana can be intimidated by serbians songs about Kosovo. If incident in Belgrade never happened i believe Muçi would chanted with them "Kosovo je srce Srbije" without any problem. The part you are understimating is abusement through social media and anonymous letters that may reach in the mailbox. If players as Mustafi and Xhaka with such international experience can be intimidated by fans who might live in another continent just imagine how scary might be for 20 year old to recieve a death threats in Poland. As Dallku said if Muçi can succeed in such hostile enviroment i won't be suprised if becomes a goal machine as Robert Lewandowski because definitively he doesn't lack the talent.

Seriously, who gives a f*** about a bunch of ultras. Muci ain't even that good anyhow. He's ok at best.

Muci has a lot of talent and he has this special Flair that only few footballers have. The thing is, if he wants to make it in Poland he has to be very very strong mentally. There is a lot of pressure in Poland, i mean he was not really cheap, Social Media Fans, new language, new culture, apart from home ect.
This boy is still a kid and now his life will change extremly. He will need a lot help from his Family and i hope they dont hype him to much. Because Mentally the most albanian footballers are maybe the worst in the world.

But if Muci succeeds in Poland, he will move very fast to the Premier League oder Bundesliga. Talents from Poland move very quickly in Higher Leagues for good money.

BTW, Sadiku made himself a Meme, talking like Ibrahimovic in Poland. You can talk shit, if you can back it up. He didnt.

I think the problem will be more severe when our NT goes to play Poland or any time some Eastern European club or nation (Serbian & Greek clubs) plays them as their ultras will do their brotherhood chants which always ends up involving Albanians. I just think at this point of his career Muci is too young and unknown for them to really care.

Looks like Cikalleshi is playing pretty well in Turkey. I see he gets good minutes even when he doesn't score which is a sign that he does other things.

In that same team that Zymer Bytyqi (who some people wanted in the NT just for being Kosovar diaspora) is warming the bench. There are levels...

Bajrami has accepted us! 5.5 mil euro market value according to transfermarket. He becomes our most valuable non defender/goalie.
