The long-time national team player of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Alisa Spahić, said goodbye to football jersey with her favourite coat of arms.
“It was wonderful to be part of a national team. All athletes have the goal of being once a national team player. I had the opportunity to play for the national team for years, first junior and then senior, and I have really nice memories of that period. My life is football and I will continue to work in this sport, but now as a coach”, says Alisa Spahić.
Our former national team player wants to see new faces in women’s football:
“I thank the FF BH for organizing my farewell and for what has been done to bring women’s football closer to the male. Also, I support all girls who want to work in the future in the field of coaching, to start their education as soon as possible. The career of a player is shorter, and if they want to stay in football, this is the best way. I am an example that immediately after the end of a career, I can successfully sail into the coaching waters, because I will continue to work as a coach in the U-17 team.”
Spahić cannot extract one detail, but appreciates every moment spent in the “A” team:
“As soon as I put on a jersey with the state coat of arms, I am motivated. There were many details, beautiful and less beautiful. We are all trying to remember only those beautiful, and all the socializing, traveling, competitions under the flag of our country are definitely the nicest things in my player career.”
Today, Alisa was presented with a gift by a member of the FF BH Executive Board Muhamed Begagić, a member of the Women’s Football Committee Safija Mahmić and the BH national team head coach Samira Hurem.
