Club careerEdit

Early careerEdit

Mustafa began his career at his local team Kosova Vushtrri, where he played for the youth teams. He joined FC Prishtina in 2008 and played for their youth team for a year before joining the senior team. He was loaned back out to Kosova Vushtrri in October 2009 for the remainder of the 2009–10 season.[2]

Partizani TiranaEdit

Mustafa signed a three-year contract with Partizani Tirana on 29 May 2014 on a free transfer and he was unveiled to the media the same day.[3][4] He made his official debut with the team on the opening day of the 2014–15 season in a 1–1 draw against Laçi, where he came on at half time for Jurgen Vatnikaj.[5] After making 10 appearances in the first part of the season, including 6 in league, Mustafa announced his departure by breaking his contract with the club.[6]

LaçiEdit

Shortly after he left Partizani Tirana he joined another Albanian Superliga side in the shape of KF Laçi as a free agent.[7]

TiranaEdit

On 1 September 2016, Mustafa joined Tirana on a two-year deal.[8] During the course of 2016–17 season, he did not make a single appearance for the club due to injury, as Tirana was relegated for the first time in history and won Albanian Cup for the 16th time, setting a new record.[9][10]

KamzaEdit

On 7 August 2017, Mustafa completed a transfer to newly promoted side Kamza by penning a two-year contract.[11]

International careerEdit

He was part of the Kosovo national team that participated in the 2008 Coppa Gaetano Scirea, an unofficial friendly tournament which Kosovo were eliminated in the semi finals in.[12]
