Aleksandar Mitreski (Macedonian: Александар Митрески) (born 5 August 1980 in Ohrid, Yugoslavia) is a footballer[1] from the Republic of Macedonia who last played for Swiss club FC Aarau.


His career began at SC Ittigen. At the age of 12 he moved to the junior team of BSC Young Boys. He eventually became a first team regular and in 2002 he earned a one million Swiss Francs transfer to Grasshopper Club Zürich, where he won the league title in 2003. He then spent a couple of years in Germany playing for 1. FC Köln and 1. FC Nürnberg before returning to Switzerland where he currently plays for FC Sion.

His journey with Sion ended on 2 April 2010 when his contract was terminated by the Sion President for late night visits to a casino. Sion gave Mitreski the chance to tell his side of the story but he lied about how many times he was at the casino so the Sion President decided to terminate his contract after another Sion player was already kicked off the team for being involved in match fixing.

Mitreski agreed to a contract with FC Aarau on 18 December 2010. He signed until the end of the season of the Swiss Challenge League.

International career[edit]

Mitreski plays as a defender or defensive midfielder, and is capped for the Macedonia national team.
