Club careerEdit

ŽeljezničarEdit

Kjosevski joined Željezničar's youth academy in 2005 and came through all youth categories. He made his professional debut against Leotar on 29 March 2014 at the age of 18.[1]

In the following seasons, Kjosevski struggled to become first-choice goalkeeper, eventually securing that spot in 2016. Season after that, he signed a new contract expiring in June 2020.[2]

On 7 April 2018, he managed to score a goal against Široki Brijeg, which earned his team a point in the game.[3] Later that season, Kjosevski won his first trophy with the club by beating Krupa in Bosnian Cup final.[4]

In 2018, Kjosevski was named club captain.[5] A few months later, he was stripped of captaincy and suspended due to breach of club's discipline.[6]

International careerEdit

Kjosevski represented Bosnia and Herzegovina on various youth levels.[7]

In March 2018, after Jasmin Burić got injured, he received his first senior call-up, for friendly games against Bulgaria and Senegal.[8]
