Xhulian Rrudho (pronounced [ˈdʒuljan ˈruðɔ]; born 9 September 1987 in Lushnjë) is an Albanian footballer currently playing for KF Tirana.


After moving in Italy as a child, he started his professional career with Italian Serie C1/B team Ancona. On 31 January 2007 he agreed a permanent move to Serie A club Chievo.

On 3 March 2007 he played his first (and, as of today, only) Serie A match for Chievo against AC Milan [1] In the 2007 summer market he was farmed to Tuscan Serie C2 team Sansovino in co-ownership deal, where he spent the first half of the 2007–08 season along with goalkeeper Antonino Saviano, defenders Leonardo Moracci (loan), Marcus N'Ze, midfielders Maycol Andriani and Luca Spinetti. On 31 January 2008 he left Sansovino and agreed to move to Scafatese, another Serie C2 team, in a loan deal.[2]

On July 2008 he returned in his native Albania, joining KF Partizani Tirana. On January 2009 he moved to KF Tirana, another top flight Albanian club.
