Endogan Adili (Turkish: Endoğan Adili; born 3 August 1994) is a Swiss professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Süper Lig club Galatasaray.



Adili started his youth football with local club FC Altstetten Zürich, but came through the ranks playing in the Grasshopper Club Zürich youth system.

On 13 May 2010 the midfielder made his Swiss Super League debut for the GC first team during the away match in the Stadion Brügglifeld against FC Aarau and he scored his first goal only 10 minutes after being substituted in.[1] As he made his debut in the GC professional team, Adili was still a member of their U-16 youth team and he was just 15 years and 283 days old, this made him the youngest player to score a goal in a top-level European football league since World War II.[2][3] Only later, during the summer break before the 2010–11 season, did he advance to their U-18 team.

Adili played 15 games for GC during the 2010–11 season and 5 games in the 2011–12 season, but in December 2011 he suffered a cruciate ligament injury, from which he took over six months to recover, and hereafter he struggled to return into their first team squad.


On 17 December 2012 FC Basel announced that they had signed Adili on a three and a half-year contract (with an additional one-year option).[4] He made his first team league debut as a substitute, playing 31 minutes, on 1 June 2013 in the 1–0 home win in St. Jakob-Park against St. Gallen.[5] At the end of the Swiss Super League season 2012–13, Adili won the Championship title and was Swiss Cup runner up with Basel.[6][7] In the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League Basel advanced as far as the semi-finals, there being matched against the reigning UEFA Champions League holders Chelsea, but were knocked out being beaten 2-5 on aggregate.[8]

At the end of the 2013–14 Super League season Adili won his second league championship with Basel.[9] They also reached the final of the 2013–14 Swiss Cup, but were beaten 2–0 by Zürich after extra time. During the 2013–14 Champions League season Basel reached the group stage and finished the group in third position. Thus they qualified for Europa League knockout phase and here they advanced as far as the quarter-finals.

International career[edit]

Adili was captain of the Swiss U16-squad and he scored 3 goals in 7 matches for the team.[10] Adili made his Switzerland U-17 debut on 18 May 2010 in the 3-0 defeat against the Portugal U-17 team. He was the youngest player of the Swiss U-17 squad at the 2010 U-17 European championships final tournament, but he came in as a substitute in all 3 matches, playing a total of 94 minutes.[11]

Adili made his Swiss U-18 debut on 30 August 2011 in the 5-0 win against the Estonia U-18 team and made his debut for the Swiss U-19 team 8 September 2012 during the 1-0 defeat in the game against the France U-19.
