About Dinamo Tirana

Klubi Sportiv Dinamo Tirana is an Albanian football (soccer) team, playing in the Albanian capital of Tirana, founded in 1950. They play at the Stadiumi Qemal Stafa which has a capacity of 25,000. Their main rivals are fellow Tirana team KF Tirana.

History

Dinamo Tirana was born as an affiliation to the Albanian Ministry of Interior. In 1995 the team was renamed KS Olimpik Tirana; in 1997 they returned to their original name. In the 2006–07 first qualifying round for the UEFA Cup the club was eliminated by CSKA Sofia from Bulgaria (1–5 aggregate). Zoran Kastel was the goalscorer. After finishing third in the table in 2005/06, KS Dinamo Tirana named Faruk Sejdini as their new coach. One of Albania's best teachers of footballing fundamentals, he had a spell at the club last term before being dismissed by president Besnik Sulaj. Having returned following a spell at KS Shkumbini, Sejdini said: "It's nice to be back." On October 23, 2006, Faruk Sejdini was fired. At the start of the 2007/08 season, Agim Canaj took over as head coach. He has been replaced by Ilir Daja who lead Dinamo towards the championship title, after a dramatic win against Partizani 2–1 in the final match, playing for 36 minutes with 9 players. In the summer of 2008 Ilir Daja moved into a position as director in order to make place for Marcelo Javier Zuleta from Argentina. The Argentinian coach also brought with him four Argentinian players; goalkeeper Daniel Bertoya, defender Alejandro Palladino, midfielder Agustín González Tapia, and striker Cristian Campozano. Zuleta only lasted for the first UEFA Champions League qualification match against Bosnian FK Modriča before he was replaced as coach by Artan Mergjyshi, for only one game. Together with Zuleta the four Argentinian players also left the club. After Mergjyshi Zlatko Dalić, the actual coach of Croatia U-21, was appointed as new coach for Dinamo. He signed a two year contract with the club. That deal was broken when Dinamo lost its second game in the re-beginning of the 2008/09 season against KF Partizani Tiranë. Shkëlqim Muça was then appointed manager of the club five days after of Zlatko Dalić's leave.
With Shkelqim Muca, in the 2009/10 season Dinamo won the championship again, registering its 18th success.
