The steady rise sent Ramadan to Serie A
Developed in Ferizaj, Prishtina e Drita, midfielder Ylber Ramadani took a big and important step in his career on Friday. He joined the Italian championship, Serie A. He signed with Lecce and will now play in one of the top European football championships.
In Serie A, Ramadani has reached the age when the peak is reached in football, 27 years old. He has joined Lecce from Aberdeen in Scotland, where he developed quite a lot. Earlier he played for MTK Budapest in Hungary (2021/2022), Vejle in Denmark (2017-2021) and Partizan of Tirana. So the development of the midfielder was gradual and unstoppable. The development of Ramadan may still continue.
But for a footballer who started at Ferizaj, appearing in Serie A is a great success.
"Ylber Ramadani is the best example that everything in life can be achieved only with work. FC Ferizaj, as his first home in his journey full of successes, wishes Ylber a lot of health", wrote Ferizaj on Friday.
Ferizaj announced that Ramadan made his debut in the senior team as a 16-year-old.
The Scottish club, Aberdeen, have also expressed their pride in Ramadan. At Aberdeen, Ramadani was one of the most important players. He won the hearts of fans with maximum commitment. In fact, commitment is one of Ramadan's strongest weapons. He has developed his career so far without much fanfare, but constantly progressing.
"Although it was only one edition, Ylberi's dedication and desire to do the best for the club has been noticed by everyone. I have no doubt that his experience at Aberdeen and in Scottish football have made him a better player and prepared him for the challenges that await him in Italian football", said Aberdeen coach Barry Robson.
Ramadan has signed for three years with Lecce. He started training on Friday.
Lecce is expected to fight for the rest of Serie A. It finished the last edition in 16th place. This team has 17 editions in Serie A. It debuted in the Italian elite in 1985.
Ramadan is now also important in Albania. The red and black team has also stabilized on the same principle - with a lot of work and no noise. He has already reached the figure of 25 matches with Albania. He also played for the youth of Albania and Kosovo.
Ramadani is another player who started his career in Kosovo and reached the top European leagues.
