Amarildo Belisha (born 11 July 1981) is a retired Albanian footballer who played as a midfielder or defender. He spent the majority of his career with his boyhood club Vllaznia Shkodër, and represented the club in both the 2000 UEFA Intertoto Cup and the 2009–10 UEFA Europa League. He was given the nickname "Ildoja" during his time with Vllaznia Shkodër.


Club career

Following the end of the first part of 2009–10 Albanian Superliga, Belisha left Flamurtari Vlorë after making only 15 league appearances, becoming the club's 7th departure during the winter transfer window.

On 6 January 2010, during the winter transfer window, Belisha agreed terms with his first club Vllaznia Shkodër and returned for a fourth stint at the club.

On 10 November 2013, Belisha recorded his 300th appearance with Vllaznia Shkodër during the 1–0 away defeat to his former side Besa Kavajë, playing 81 minutes.

A day later, Belisha announced his retirement from professional football at the age of 33, ending thus his 15-year career. Following his retirement, Belisha told the media that he would start his coaching career.
