Club career[edit]

Mirahmetjan grew up from a football family with his father Muzepper and grandfather Zunun Mamut both playing within the Xinjiang region.[1] At a young age he would quickly draw the attentions of Shandong Luneng and join their youth team where he would win several youth championships, which attracted the interests of Henan Construction who took him on loan at the beginning of the 2010 Chinese Super League season where he would make his senior debut in a league game against Jiangsu Sainty on April 18, 2010 that was a 0-0 draw.[2]

After a productive season where Mirahmetjan established himself as a regular for Henan he would return to Shandong at the beginning of the 2011 Chinese Super League and would go on to make his first senior appearance for the club in a league game against Chengdu Blades on April 1, 2011 as a substitute Wang Yongpo in a 3-3 draw.[3]

On 5 January 2014, Mirahmetjan transferred to fellow Chinese Super League side Henan Jianye on a free transfer.[4] On 31 December 2016, Henan Jianye officially confirmed that Mirahmetjan had left the club after a disagreement in negotiations for extending his contract.[5]

On 9 January 2017, Mirahmetjan moved to Super League side Tianjin Teda.[6]
