Fatjon Fatmir Sefa (born 23 July 1984 in Lushnjë) is an Albanian professional footballer who plays for Lushnja in Albanian Superliga as a forward. He is nicknamed "Ujku" (Wolf for Albanian) due to his scoring abilities inside of the zone.[1]


Dinamo Tirana[edit]

Sefa moved to Dinamo Tirana in the summer of 2008 ahead of the club's Champions League campaign of 2008–09. He moved from his hometown club, Lushnja and was given the number 16 shirt for his first season. He played the first leg of Dinamo Tirana's Champions League encounter against FK Modrica. He came on in the 53rd minute for Argentine, Cristian Andres Campozano.[2] Sefa made his league debut in a Dinamo Tirana jersey on the opening day of the season against Teuta Durrës. He came on in the 76th minute for fellow new signing, Frane Petricevic.[3] He scored his first goal for the club on 1 November 2008 against Apolonia Fier. Sefa opened the score in the 14th minute and also played the full game.[4] He also managed to score a hat-trick against Apolonia Fier on 15 February 2009, his goals came in the 45th, 62nd and 74th minute of the game, after completing his hat-trick he substituted for Rubén Cecco in the 85th minute.[5] During the 2008–09 season he played 24 games and scored 9 goals, making him the club's second highest goalscorer for the season.[6]

Skënderbeu Korçë[edit]

In May 2014, following the relegation of Besa Kavajë in Albanian First Division, Sefa joined Albanian champions Skënderbeu Korçë by signing a one-year contract.[7]

He made his competitive debut with the team in the opening Albanian Superliga week against the newly prometed side Elbasani at Qemal Stafa Stadium, scoring the only goal of the match in the first half.[8] After winning the Albanian Supercup[9] and the Albanian Superliga title with the club,[10] Sefa left Skënderbeu Korçë at the end of the 2014–15 season through a mutual agreement to terminate his contract, which was due to expire the following year in 2016.[11][12]

Third return to Lushnja[edit]

In August 2015, Sefa returned to his hometown club Lushnja for the third time in his career, taking the vacant number 29 and was given the Captaincy.[13] On 14 May 2017, Sefa scored the only goal in the final match against Bylis Ballsh to help Lushnja finish top of Group B, helping the club to return to Albanian Superliga for the first time in three years.[14]
