Ramadan (L) being introduced by FlamurtariRamadan (L) being introduced by FlamurtariZekirija Ramadan has left Shkupi to take over the managerial position of Flamurtari in Albania.

Shkupi, one of the surprise teams during the first half of the season, recently underwent a coaching change after Zekirija Ramadan left to take over Flamurtari. Ramadan was fairly popular among Shkupi fans, but he viewed Flamurtari as a step up for his career. So, he informed Shkupi management that he leave effective immediately. Formerly a national team player with 7 caps for Macedonia, Zekirija's last name is today often mistaken with adding an "i" at the end.

In turn, Shkupi stayed in-house to quickly fill the vacancy. Visar Ganiu was moved from sporting director to head coach.

Shkupi has 24 points after 18 completed rounds this season, good enough for a 4th place tie with Rabotnichki. The Skopje-based side will begin winter preparations with Ganiu this upcoming Monday, on January 11, to get ready for the remaining games on the schedule.
