Aleksandar Trajkovski (Macedonian: Александар Трајковски; born 5 September 1992 in Skopje) is a Macedonian football striker who currently plays for Belgian club KV Mechelen on loan from S.V. Zulte Waregem.

Career[edit]

Trajkovski began his career with FK Cementarnica 55 where he was a highly regarded player and caught the eye of Croatian club NK Inter Zaprešić. He was only 17 when he signed but he couldn't play for them until he turns 18.

Aleksandar Trajkovski earlier this year was a guest player at English giants Chelsea and scored the winning goal in the U-19 Copa Amsterdam against Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas which guaranteed Chelsea a place in the semi-finals.[1]

After a few years with Cementarnica Skopje, he signed in the summer of 2010 for NK Inter Zaprešić.[2] Good games at the second half of the season attracted the interest of GNK Dinamo Zagreb,[3] but Trajkovski said that he is not interested with a possible move. Also, at the end of the season, R.S.C. Anderlecht was interested in buying Trajkovski, but their offer of 500.000 euros was rejected. He will join the Belgian club Zulte Waregem [4] for the new season 2011-2012 after their offer of 1.100.000 euros was accepted by Inter Zaprešić.

On 22 May 2012, the Macedonian U21 national team defeated Netherlands 1-0 in a friendly, with the lone goal scored by Aleksandar Trajkovski.[5][6]
