Career[edit]

His club career started in FC Dinamo Tbilisi when Georgian football league was formed in 1990, the Dinamo team won several titles in a row, and Jamarauli was a key player during this period. In 1996 he wanted to play abroad, and moved to Russian (North Ossetian) team FC Alania Vladikavkaz, and the next season to Trabzonspor of Turkey.

Neither spell was very successful, so he got a transfer to Swiss club FC Zürich in summer 1998 where he spent four seasons until leaving following a contract dispute. Via another Swiss team, FC Luzern, he joined FC Metalurh Donetsk in the Ukrainian league,[1] where he would spend two and a half season. Following brief spells with Dinamo Tbilisi[2] and Anorthosis Famagusta the midfielder announced his retirement from professional football.

International career[edit]

He was a regular in the national team, and played 62 international matches and scored 6 goals between 1994 and 2004.[3]

He made his début on 8 February 1994.
