Antonio Marku (born 24 March 1992 in Shkodër) is an Albanian footballer who plays as a defender for Vllaznia Shkodër in the Albanian Superliga.[1][2]

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Marku began playing football with the youth teams of his local team Vllaznia Shkodër but in 2010 due to his university studies he moved to Tirana, where he began playing for Dinamo Tirana. He was part of the Dinamo Tirana U-19 side for the 2010-11 season where he was the team captain.[3]

Marku made his professional debut against Flamurtari Vlorë on 20 April 2011 in a 6-2 loss, coming on as a substitute in the 57th minute for Nurudeen Orelesi.[4] He was then prmooted to the starting line-up for the 2011-12 season because of Dinamo's extreme financial difficulties which resulted in nearly all of the senior players to leave the club in the summer. In the summer of 2013 he joined FK Kukësi.
