Superleague of Kosovo 2023/2024 (ongoing): 3 game/1 goal (Llapi)


Elvir Gashijani is considered to be one of the most talented teenagers in Kosovo. In July 2023, he moved from KF 2 Korriku to KF Llapi. He made his professional debut on 13 August 2023 in the Kosovan top tier game against FC Drita. He’s also a regular youth international for Kosovo – after being one of the leaders of the U-17 setup, he’ll surely become the star of the older national teams.
