“Blendi is a young player with a lot of potential, who made the leap from the U23 side to the first-team squad and was an important part of our promotion-winning side.

Idrizi took his first steps in senior football with Blau-Weiß Friesdorf, before joining Regionalliga side Alemannia Aachen for the 2019/20 season. After six months, he made another switch to league rivals Fortuna Köln, before the Bonn native joined Schalke’s reserve team in January 2020. The Kosovo international played a total of 36 games for the Royal Blues’ U23s. In the summer of 2021, the 24-year-old was rewarded with a professional contract with the Knappen and featured in 22 games in the second division, scoring one goal.
