Florian Myrtaj (born 15 September 1976 in Vlorë) is an Albanian former football player.
Myrtaj, who moved to Italy in 1989, aged 13, after having been signed by the Modena F.C. youth section, is also an Italian citizen.
Myrtaj reached his highlight during his period at Verona, then in Serie B, where he spent two seasons with a total 13 goals.
Before joining Verona he was signed by Parma in 2002 and sold to Cesena in co-ownership deal along with Christian Terlizzi. In June 2003, Parma bought back Myrtaj and sold him to Verona. After leaving Verona in 2005, he had an unimpressive time at Catanzaro, again in Serie B, before returning to play in the third tier with a number of other teams, including a lacklustre return at Teramo; on September 2008 he joined Sorrento from Arezzo, and spent two seasons with the Campanian side.
Myrtaj has 26 caps and 3 goals for the national team.
After retirement, Myrtaj worked as a scout for Modena from July 2013 to February 2014.
