Izair Emini moves to Kukësi

Last season's top goalscorer Izair Emini left Renova to strengthen Albanian top flight side Kukësi.

The 30-year-old attacker was expected to sign for Shkendija, but at the end he ended up in neighbouring Albania. Since Renova wasn't giving him his wages, Emini was destined to leave his team and was not in the team in the last four matches. He leaves as best player in the squad although this season he wasn't performing at his best (6 goals od 14 games). However, last season he was the top goalscorer in the First League and also won our award for "Best overall player of the season".

His new club was runner-up last season, but now is struggling in the mid-table. The lack of scoring forced Kukësi to look for a striker and their choice fell on Emini. Currently they are 5th with only 17 goals scored in 18 games and 15 points behind leaders Skënderbeu. If Emini finds his form from last season, Kukësi could put up a good fight for the Europa League places. Also, the club is still active in the Albanian Cup as they face Teuta in the quarter-finals.
