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!

In other news Naser Aliji signs with a Serie B club (Virtrus something..). They are just above the relegation zone. There doesn't seem like much moves from other guys lately. I was hoping Grezda could find a team in Italy and that Sadiku would leave Poland.
Now that we're establishing a tradition of having Italian coaches I'd like to see more and more of our players move to Italy. It helps with having a more cohesive unit if most of players play in the same country.

Yup. I figure this is the first wave of Albanian players into Italy. Hopefully, Italian clubs will begin to take more chances on Albanian players going forward. Tare and Di Biasi have established some strong connections in Italy (Now with Panucci). Players like Hysaj, Berisha, Strakosha, Ajeti, etc, have shown that Albanian players aren't all total flops and were pretty much the guinea pigs. Then there's those dual citizen diaspora kids.

We just need for them to invest in the Superliga more.

This guy made his debut in bundesliga. https://www.transfermarkt.com/elvis-rex ... ler/280575

Looks like he's from Albania not Kosovo so something to keep an eye on

If he qualifies to play for Germany and he's really good it doesn't matter if he's from Albania or Kosovo tbh.

Lol, I was thinking the same thing.


There's also this guy as well. He's only playing in the 3rd division of Germany but he seems to have decent potential. Bushi should definitely look into him for the U-21.

He'll most likely never be good enough to play for Germany. Worst comes to worst he'll pull a Mavraj and play for us at the age of 26 when he realizes he's not good enough.

lol, I have a hard time believing that. I'm pretty sure he's from Northern Albania with that name.

He's probably from somewhere near here. Notice the different names you see there, Gjonaj, Rexhaj, Recaj

But honestly who the f*** knows. I'm kinda curious now

He is from Prizren. Just checked his profile on socials and his surname version in Kosove (cousins) use mostly : Rexhbeqaj or Rexhbeçaj.

Armando Sadiku was sold to Levante in La Liga for 1 million
Rashica transfers to Werder Bremem for estimated fee around 5 - 10 million


Sadiku finally gets his chance. Lets see what he's made of.
