Bekim Kastrati (born 25 September 1984) is an Albanian football player[1] who currently plays for TuS 64 Bösinghoven in the German Oberliga Niederrhein.

Career[edit]

He is a striker who had joined Bonn from Dynamo Dresden in January 2010, switching to Wuppertaler SV Borussia in May. Prior to playing for Düsseldorf he had played for a number of German clubs including Fortuna Düsseldorf, Eintracht Braunschweig and Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Injury[edit]

In January 2008, Fortuna Düsseldorf hosted the SWD Wintercup, inviting Bundesliga sides Werder Bremen, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer 04 Leverkusen over for a short one-day tournament. Fortuna won it, beating Dortmund 1–0 in the final. The winning goal was scored by Kastrati. A few days later, Fortuna played a friendly against Bayern Munich. Bayern won 3–2, thanks to goals by Jan Schlaudraff and Luca Toni. Kastrati had a chance to equalise in the 89th minute, but he unfortunately crashed into Bayern's third choice keeper Bernd Dreher. It was this incident where he suffered a fractured testicle and had to be brought to a hospital to undergo an emergency operation.

International career[edit]

He is also part of the Albania national football team.
