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


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.


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.
