Sander Puri (born 7 May 1988) is an Estonian footballer who plays as a midfielder for League of Ireland First Division club Waterford and the Estonia national team.

Club career[edit]

Levadia[edit]

Puri was born in Tartu, Tartu County.[1] In 2005, at the age of 16, Puri started his professional career with Levadia.[3] He scored his first Meistriliiga goal on 1 June 2005, in a 2–0 victory over Kuressaare.[4] On 30 July 2007, Sander and his twin brother Eino Puri joined Tulevik a half-year loan.[5] He played 14 league matches, scoring 4 goals.[6] In 2008, Puri had two trials with Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund[7] and in late 2009 with Scottish Premier League club Celtic.[8]

Larissa[edit]

On 14 December 2009, Puri signed a five-year contract with Superleague Greece club Larissa.[9] On 18 March 2010, Puri scored the winning goal against PAOK, in the final moment of the match with a tap in from close range.[10] However, in his second season, Puri's place in the team became increasingly limited which resulted him being loaned out twice.[11] His contract was mutually terminated on 31 January 2012.[12]

Loan spells with Korona Kielce and Pápa[edit]

In January 2011, Puri went on loan to Ekstraklasa club Korona Kielce, on a contract until the end of the season.[13] He made his debut in a 1–1 draw against Zagłębie Lubin on 26 February 2011.[14] Puri scored his first goal for the club in a 3–3 home draw against Polonia Bytom on 12 March 2011.[2] However, due to injuries he only made eight appearances for the club.[15][16]

In July 2011, Puri was loaned to Nemzeti Bajnokság I club Pápa.[17] On 23 July 2011, Puri made his debut in a 2–0 home win over Siófok.[2] On 21 September 2011, Puri scored his first goal in a 10–0 win against Győrszemere in the third round of the 2011–12 Magyar Kupa.[2][18] The loan contract was mutually terminated on 19 January 2012 after spending six months at the club.[2][19] At Pápa, Puri made 14 appearances, scoring 1 goal.[2][18]

KuPS[edit]

Puri joined Veikkausliiga club KuPS on 27 March 2012 on a contract until the end of the season,[20] after a successful trial.[21] He made his debut after starting in a 1–0 away win over VPS in the 2012 Finnish League Cup group stage on 25 February.[2] His first goal came in a 5–1 away win over JJK on 11 June 2012.[2] Puri scored for KuPS in the UEFA Europa League qualifying 1–0 home win against Bursaspor.[22] He scored the winning goal against MYPA in the semi-final of the 2012 Finnish Cup on 30 August,[23] but received a straight red card in the final, which the team lost to Honka.[24]

On 12 December 2012, Puri was released by the club after one season.[25] After his release, Puri was offered a contract with A Group club Beroe Stara Zagora,[26] but he rejected the move.[27]

St Mirren[edit]

On 15 March 2013, Puri signed a contract until the end of 2012–13 with Scottish Premier League club St Mirren,[28] despite the interest of divisional rivals Kilmarnock, but was not offered a contract following a trial.[29][30] He made his debut on 31 March 2013 as an 88th-minute substitute in a league match against Celtic.[2] Having made three appearances for the club,[2] Puri was released on 15 May 2013.[31]
