Faton Toski (born 17 February 1987) is an Albanian footballer who plays for Malaysian club Perak TBG.[1][2] Toski has played for the Kosovo national football team since 2014.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Toski was born in Gjilan and his family moved to Germany when he was still young. He began his career for TuS Makkabi Frankfurt and signed after one year an youth contract for Eintracht Frankfurt.[3]

Eintracht Frankfurt[edit]

He debuted in the Bundesliga for the Eagles in a match against Werder Bremen on 12 May 2007.[4] He scored his first goal for the club on 8 December 2007 in a 2–2 draw against Schalke 04.[5]

Bochum[edit]

On 11 June 2010, he left Frankfurt after sixteen years and signed for VfL Bochum.[6]

FSV Frankfurt[edit]

On 21 January 2014, Toski joined FSV Frankfurt by signing until the end of 2013–14 season, with option of renewing. He made his debut for Frankfurt on 7 February 2014 against exactly his previous team VfL Bochum, coming on as a substitute in place of Nikita Rukavytsya in the 72nd minute of the match, which Frankfurt won 2–1.[7] During the second part of the season, Toski was used briefly, making only six appearances, only two of them as a starter.

Laçi[edit]

On 16 August 2016, Toski joined Albanian Superliga side Laçi as a free agent, signing a two-year contract.[8] Due to his big experience, Toski was prompted team captain by coach Marcello Troisi.[9] He made his first Laçi appearance on 7 September in the opening Albanian Superliga week against newly prometed side Korabi Peshkopi which ended in a goalless draw.[10] On 17 October, Toski scored Laçi's first league goal of the season in the matchday 7 against Vllaznia Shkodër, after he noticed the wrong placement of goalkeeper Jasmin Agović, and taking a shot from the midfield.[11][12] Until the end of the first part of the season, Toski appeared in 11 matches, including one in cup, as Laçi struggeled for results. On 14 January of the following year, he left the club to purchase a career in Malaysia.[13]

International career[edit]

Toski is former member of the Germany national under-19 football team and earned five caps, who scored one goal.[14] He declared in 2010 to the Albanian media that he would play for Kosovo, but if international recognition of Kosovo's national team would be problematic, he would accept playing for Albania.[15] He played his first international friendly match for Kosovo on 5 March 2014, appearing as a substitute in a goalless draw against Haiti.[16]
