Artūrs Silagailis (born 3 May 1987) is a retired Latvian football defender. Currently he works as a youth coach at his hometown club Blāzma.

Club career[edit]

Silagailis began his career in the local club Rēzeknes Dižvanagi (later renamed SK Blāzma).

In February 2009 he signed a contract with FC Kryvbas Kryvyi Rih.[1] He made his first-team debut in a league match against the famous FC Shakhtar Donetsk.[2]

He found it difficult to find a place in the starting line-up, so he left the team on loan to FK Ventspils in March 2010.[3]

In August 2010 he signed a contract with KF Tirana in Albanian Superliga.[4] Due to the delayed salary payment he left the team in December, the same year, signing a one-year contract with an option to extend it for another season with FC Gomel, playing in the Belarusian Premier League.[5]

Just 3 months after signing with FC Gomel, Silagailis left the club, signing for another Belarusian Premier League club Dnepr Mogilev.[6]

International career[edit]

From 2007 to 2008 Silagailis played for Latvia U-21, but he hasn't been capped for the senior side so far.


His brother Guntars is also a professional footballer, currently playing for Ahva Arraba F.C. in Israel.
