He refused to become like Adnan Januzaj, the talent Shkurti chooses Albania before Belgium
Written by Adriatik BALLA 8 Gusht 2022
Years ago, the former coach of our Red and Black National Team, Xhani De Biazi, made several attempts to convince Adnan Januzaj to play for Albania. This initiative was also joined by members of the AFL, as well as the groups of fans who en masse begged the midfielder with high technical qualities to choose to play for the representative of his parents' origin. But Adnan Januzaj refused. He even refused to play for Kosovo, the birthplace of his parents, choosing to represent Belgium. The latter invited him, gave him the opportunity to play a couple of matches to shut him up, and in the end threw him on the street, not giving him a chance to play in the Belgian lineup, due to the great rivalry that Belgium had with "stars". The disappointment suffered by the red and black fans was so great that no words were left unsaid about Januzaj. It seems that the curse of Albania took him, since Januzaj has not made any career with Belgium to date, while he could be a star and captain of a magical "10" in Albania, appreciated and adored by the red and black fans. But unlike Januzaj, a talent from Shkodra who plays in Belgium has not made the mistake of the Kosovar, because Kevin Shkurti has chosen to play for Albania and this is significant at a time when talented Albanians in Europe are coveted by many representatives. In an interview he gave for the website of the federation ("fshf.org"), he explained the reasons for his choice. He was born in Belgium and took his first steps on the football fields in the city of Brussels. The boy originally from Shkodra, who has just turned 18 years old and plays the role of midfielder,
The attitude of February
The boy from Shkodra does not hide that it was his great desire to become a footballer that encouraged him to work hard to achieve his goals. "I have always been driven by the great desire I have to become a famous footballer to honor myself, my family and my country. My two parents who have sacrificed and supported me a lot since the first day when I started this sport and until today. They continue to support me to this day with the same eagerness. Undoubtedly, I felt very proud at that moment when I received the invitation from the Albanian national team. Although I had also tried to play with the national teams of Belgium, the feeling of representing the red and black jersey was special and will be an unforgettable moment. My biggest achievement has to do with the fact that I have been part of the OH Leuven team for 8 years and already a little while ago I signed the first professional contract with this club that participates in the Belgian Super League. It is certainly a very important step in my career", said Shkurti. He also shows the Albanian player who motivates him. "The Albanian player who has always motivated me was the famous former captain, Lorik Cana, for the grit and competitive spirit he displayed on the playing field. Of the foreign players, I definitely try to be motivated by the Italian midfielder, Marko Verrati.
