Bashkim Kadrii (born 9 July 1991) is a Danish footballer who currently plays for Major League Soccer club Minnesota United FC,[1] on loan from F.C. Copenhagen.

Club career[edit]


Kadrii began his career with B.93 in the Danish 2nd Division East, where he was the top goal scorer for the club,[2] In late 2009 Danish media wrote that both OB and Dortmund[3] were in the chase for the young attacker, but he opted for OB, signing a four-year contract with Odense in mid-2010.[4]

After OB sacked head coach Lars Olsen, assistant coach Viggo Jensen and director of sports Kim Brink on 13 September, Bashkim Kadrii was handed his senior debut three days later, in the Europa League match away against Getafe, with OB losing 1–2.

He scored his first hattrick for OB on 5 December 2011 against SønderjyskE, when OB won 4–0 in the last round before the winter break..[5]

In the summer transfer window of 2014, Kadrii signed a four-year contract with Danish vice-champions FC Copenhagen and received the number 9 shirt. He scored the lone goal in the 1–0 win against Brøndby IF securing Copenhagen a vital win over their bitter rivals.[6]

Major League Soccer[edit]

Kadrii was sent to Minnesota United F.C. on 8 February 2017, on loan from FC Copenhagen.[7]

National career[edit]

Kadrii has played 18 games for the Denmark national under-19 football team and scored six goals, and played four games for the Denmark national under-18 football team and scored two goals. He was also a part of the Denmark national under-20 football team and Denmark national under-21 football team.[8]
