Yksel Osmanovski (Macedonian Cyrillic: –ė–ļ—Ā–Ķ–Ľ –ě—Ā–ľ–į–Ĺ–ĺ–≤—Ā–ļ–ł, Iksel Osmanovski) (born February 24, 1977 in Skr√§vlinge, Malm√∂marker) is a former Swedishmarker football forward. His parents originate from the region of Prespa Lakemarker, Republic of Macedoniamarker and he is of Turkish descent. He is the first Muslim to represent Sweden in football. He has played 14 international matches for the Sweden national team, and was a squad player for the Euro 2000. He played for Malm√∂ BI and IFK Malm√∂ as a child, but joined Malm√∂ FF in 1987 where he eventually made his debut in 1995. He gradually became a star in the Swedish league, and was bought by Italian Serie A outfit AS Bari. After three seasons he moved on to Torino Calcio, but struggled to capture a first team place. He therefore returned to Malm√∂ FF in 2004.

Yksel grew up in Roseng√•rdmarker, where fellow Swedish soccer star Zlatan Ibrahimovińá also grew up. In an early interview, Zlatan said that "within a few years, I'll play in Italy, and eventually the national team. I want to follow in Yksel's footsteps. We know each other, even if he is four years older than me. I got his autograph when he started playing for Malm√∂ FF, when I played in Malm√∂ BI. When he came to Roseng√•rd and played and dribbled with us kids, we were all shouting "Yksel, Yksel, Yksel!" - Ibrahimovińá, in 2000

In February 2008, Yksel announced his retirement from professional soccer.
