Muarem Muarem (born 22 October 1988) is an association footballer from FYR Macedonia. Muarem plays as a midfielder and has played for Orduspor in Turkey and FK Rabotnički in Macedonia at club level as well as the Macedonia national football team, for whom he has three caps, all won in 2011. He has also represented Macedonia at under-17, under-19 and under-21 level. Muarem is right-footed.[1]


Club career

Rabotnicki Skopje

Born in Skopje, the capital, Muarem spent his youth career with Rabotnicki Skopje, turning professional in the 2008–09 season and making four appearances for the first team.[2] He made his debut for the club in a 0-0 draw with Azerbaijan's Inter Baku on 15 July 2008 in a 2008-09 UEFA Champions League qualifier, being brought on after 50 minutes by manager Boban Babunski.[3] Muarem then became a regular fixture in the first team, playing twenty times in 2009–2010 in the Macedonian First League as well as competing in Europe against Mika FC of Armenia and FC Lusitanos of Andorra, scoring against the latter in a 5-0 win on 1 July 2010.[4] Despite this success at Rabotnicki in such a short amount of time, Muarem moved on to Orduspor in Turkey.


Muarem moved to TFF First League outfit Orduspor ahead of the 2010–11 season, signing a contract on 18 August 2010 that was designed to keep him at the club until May 2013.[5] Muarem made his debut for Orduspor just three days after signing for them, in a 1-1 draw with Kayseri Erciyesspor.[6] Muarem scored a brace for his new club on just his third Orduspor appearance, opening and finishing the scoring in a 4-0 win over İstanbul Güngörenspor on 11 September.[7] The midfielder also scored against Altay Izmir in a 2-1 loss and against Boluspor in a 2-1 win in October 2010.[8][9]

He regularly played under the manager who had signed him, Uğur Tütüneker, but when Tütüneker resigned in March 2011, Muarem's appearances became few and far between. He played just twice in April and once in May under new manager Metin Diyadin and it was no surprise when Muarem's contract with Orduspor was cancelled and he returned to Rabotnicki. Muarem made his last appearance for Orduspor in a 1-0 away victory against Denizlispor on 15 May 2011.[10] He wore the no.19 shirt for the club.

Return to Rabotnicki

After being made a free agent due to his contract with Orduspor being terminated, Muarem had offers from fomer club Rabotnicki Skopje and Azerbaijani side AZAL PFC. He chose to return to the city of his birth, signing a two-year contract in August 2011.[11] Muarem made his second debut for Rabotnicki in a 1-0 loss at FK Vardar on 9 August 2011.[12] He then played in both legs of Rabotnicki's 9-1 aggregate loss to S.S. Lazio in the UEFA Europa League, being replaced in the second half of both games. Muarem scored his first goals since returning to Rabotnicki against FK Napredok on 24 September 2011, netting his team's first and last goals in a 4-0 win.[13]

International career

Youth teams

Muarem played three times for Macedonia under-17, making his debut in a 4-1 loss to Georgia on 20 September 2004.[14] He then racked up another three appearances for Macedonia under-19 before moving on to the under-21 team.

The midfielder made his debut for the under-21s against England on 4 September 2009 in a 2-1 loss. He went on to make nine appearances for the team, scoring his first international goal in his second under-21 appearance, a 1-1 draw with Lithuania on 9 September 2009, scoring in the first minute of the match. He scored his second goal a month later against England, netting a low free-kick that brought his team back into the game at 2-1. He also scored against Portugal and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Muarem played his final game for the under-21s in the 2-1 loss to Greece on 4 September 2010.
