Ramazan Rragami (born 3 April 1944 in Shkoder, Albania) is a former national football player and coach for Albania. He is also one of KS Vllaznia Shkoder's most notable players of all time. Recently he became a member of The Disciplinary Committee affiliated with The Albanian Football Federation.
Ramazan Rragami had a brilliant career as a player as well as a coach in the national and international arena. He started playing in his native town, Vllaznia, at the age of 16. He continued there until 1967 when he was recruited by the Partizani team of Tirana and played there until 1970. He returned to Vllaznia in 1970 and, in 1972, won both the league title and League Cup. In the final game of the League Cup, Rragami scored 7 times from the penalty box, twice during regular time and five additional penalty kicks after an aggregate tie. It is worth noting that this is the first and last time a player has scored all penalties for one team. FIFA regulations at that time allowed one player to execute all penalty kicks after a regular game tie. FIFA has since changed the rule and different players are now required to make the attempt.
Ramazan Rragami began his coaching career while he was still playing in 1972. Upon finishing his career as a player he started as a full-time coach with KS Vllaznia where he won the league in the 1982–1983 season. At the same time he was the assistant coach for the Albania national under-21 football team, which reached the quarter finals of the Euro 84. They became the first Albanian team in any level to qualify for a competitive tournament.
Ramazan Rragami than studied in Coverciano in Italy where he received his coaching certification in one of the most prestigious coaching schools in the world.
