Daniel Xhafaj (born 8 March 1977) is an Albanian football striker who currently plays for Skënderbeu Korçë in the Albanian Superliga. His main position is centre forward and he is known in Albania for his goalscoring ability which he has shown over the years. He has also been called up to the Albania during his career but failed to earn many caps with the national team.

Career

Besa (2009-10)

Xhafaj signed for KS Besa Kavajë on 27 August 2009 after having played in the Champions League Qualifiers with previous club KF Tirana against Norwegian side Stabæk IF. Tirana's failure to qualify to the next round lead to Xhafaj considering his options, one of those came from Besa's president Nexhat Bizhdili who had great ambitions to make Besa one of Albania's top sides. Just days before finalising the deal for the striker, he had a meeting with Bizhdili to discuss a possible transfer, after he was convinced he signed on 27 August 2009 and trained with the rest of the club at their preseason training camp in Mavrovë.[1]

Flamurtari (2010-11)

He was released by the Flamurtari chairman Shpëtim Gjika on 19 July 2011, along with three other main players, Sebino Plaku, Bledar Devolli and Julian Ahmataj.[2]

Skënderbeu (2011-2012)

Despite interest from Greek side PAS Giannina, Xhafaj signed a one year contract with Albanian champions Skënderbeu Korçë on 23 July 2011, just 4 days after being released by Flamurtari. He is believed to have signed a contract worth €70,000 for the 2011-12 season.[3][4][5]

Teuta Durres

Xhafa returned to Teuta Durres after a 5 year absence on 2 August 2012.[6]
