Career

Brann

Memelli only played 16 games for Brann in his first season, and that went to be his last. He was not happy with the lack of playing time, several clubs in Norway and Sweden was after him. However he did mark himself in the games he played, especially in the UEFA Cup where he grabbed 4 goals in 2 games. He also scored a goal in the Royal League.

GAIS

Memelli's first season with GAIS got off to a very good start as he scored 4 goals in 4 pre-season games. In the Allsvenskan he wasn't so lucky as he did not score any goals but he still played 16 games, and proved that he had other skills too. Another pre-season and 2 goals in 2 games, this might be his year. But the 2008 edition of Allsvenskan he was sidelined due to injury.

KF Tirana

Memelli was loaned out to the most successful team in Albanian, KF Tirana before the start of the Albanian Superliga 2008-09. Prior to his loan move back to Albania, Memelli was listed with 140 matches and 45 goals in the Albanian Superliga with Skënderbeu Korçë, Teuta Durrës, KS Elbasani and KF Laci from 2000 to 2006. He played a total of 28 games in the Albanian Superliga throughout the 2008-2009 campaign and managed to score an impressive 22 goals in the process, this meant that he beat Sebino Plaku to the Golden Boot and helped win a call up for Albania.

Flamurtari Vlore

On 27 January 2010 Memelli signs for KS Flamurtari Vlorë in the Albanian Superliga until the end of the season 2009-2010.

Saudi Arabia

After a very impressive second half of the 2009-2010 season with Flamurtari, where he scored 14 goals in just 15 games, almost averaging a goal a game, there was huge interest in the player from both Albania and abroad. However he opted to join former Dinamo Tirana coach Zlatko Dalić in Saudi Arabia and signed for Al-Faisaly Harmah on 17 June 2010. He signed a 1 year contract worth over $320,000. This deal included bonuses for every win and for every goal whilst at the club, and also a luxury apartment in the city of Harmah as well as a brand new car. The Arabian club had been tracking the player and had seen many DVDs of the player, along with the fact that he was the top scorer in Albania in the 2008-2009 season it convinced the owners of the club to offer Memelli such a huge offer.[3]

International career

Following a very impressive return to Albania Memelli also received a call-up to the Albanian National Team by the coach at the time, Arie Haan. He made his debut for the Albanian National Team on 1 April 2009 against Denmark in a World Cup Qualification game. Memelli came on for Besart Berisha in the 85th minute of the game.[4] His debut was not one to celebrate as Albania lost the match 3-0 and by doing so further reducing their chances of qualification, and Arie Haan, the manager that called him up then stood down from his role as the coach of Albanian National Team [5]
