Edmond Kapllani (born 31 July 1982 in Durrësmarker, Albaniamarker) is an Albanianmarker footballer who currently plays as a striker for FC Augsburg in the German 2nd Bundesliga.

Club career

Before joining Karlsruher SC, Kapllani had played for several different clubs. His former clubs are KS Teuta Durrës, KF Partizani Tirana and KS Besa Kavajë in the Albanian Superliga. He also spent one year in Croatiamarker with NK Rijeka, but after an uneventful season in Croatiamarker's top division he soon returned to play in Albaniamarker.

Karlsruher SC

Kapllani joined the then 2nd Bundesliga side, Karlsruher SC, on 1 July 2004. It took time for Kapllani to adjust to the German league's style of play and started only 15 games in his first season, scoring just 1 goal. In the 2005–06 season Kapllani became a more regular first team player, appearing in 25 league games that season, scoring six goals. He had a very successful 2006–07 season with Karlsruher SC, as he became the second highest goalscorer in the 2nd Bundesliga with 17 goals in 30 appearances, behind teammate and strike partner Giovanni Federico, who netted 19 times in the same season. Both players helped the club gain promotion to the Fußball-Bundesliga after a nine-year absence. In the 2007–08 season, Kapllani found it difficult to adjust to the top division, starting only 14 of his 28 matches and scoring just two goals. Despite Kapllani's indifferent form, Karlsruher SC finished in eleventh place, securing top-flight football for another year.

However, the following season proved to be even more disappointing. Kapllani started only 6 of his 20 appearances because Edmund Becker entrusted the strike position to Joshua Kennedy even though the Australian wasn't able to score a single goal until the final match of the season. As a result, only one team scored more seldom than Karlsruhe and the club was relegated from the Bundesliga. Kapllani's only sense of achievement followed from his goal in the first round of the DFB-Pokal.

FC Augsburg

On 27 May 2009, Kapllani took advantage of a contract clause and left Karlsruhe for FC Augsburg on a free transfer, signing a contract until 2011.
