Vali Aydin oglu Gasimov (Azerbaijani: Vəli Qasımov, also spelled Veli Kasumov; born 4 October in 1968) is an Azerbaijani retired footballer who played as a striker.

Club career

Born in Kirovabad, Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic, Soviet Union, Gasimov started playing for FC Mayak Kharkiv and FC Metalist Kharkiv. In 1992 he switched to FC Spartak Moscow but, unsettled, finished the season at neighbours FC Dynamo, being eventually crowned the first division's top scorer at 16 goals.[1]

Gasimov was bought by Spain's Real Betis in January 1993, but would appear very irregularly in his two 1/2 seasons at the Andalusia side. After just three La Liga appearances in his final season, he finished his stint in the country with two clubs (and two relegations), Albacete Balompié and Écija Balompié (the latter in the second division, where he failed to score).[2]

In the 1997 summer, Gasimov moved to Portugal with Vitória de Setúbal. He suffered a back injury which forced him to rest for a significant period of his debut season, but still netted 11 times in 24 matches. After a second campaign he retired still in the country, with Imortal DC in Algarve.[3]

International career

Gasimov won 14 caps for Azerbaijan during four years,[4] making his debut on 19 April 1994 in a 0–5 friendly loss to Malta.[5]

After retiring, he coached his national team's under-19 side.[3]
