Adnan Zahirović (born 23 March 1990) is a Bosnian-Herzegovinian professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Zahirović started his career at Čelik Zenica in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where he played for two seasons.

In 2011, he was transferred to Russian side Spartak Nalchik.[2]

He was then loaned to Dinamo Minsk.[3]

He moved to German club VfL Bochum in July 2013.[4][5]

On 17 July 2015 he signed for Hapoel Acre.[6]

In February 2016, after terminating his contract with Hapoel, he signed a two-year deal with Bosnian side Željezničar.[7] However, that summer he rescinded his contract with the Sarajevo-based club, signing for RNK Split.[8] Zahirović would go on to feature in only two games for the Croatian club, parting ways with it in December 2016.[9]

He signed for FK Mladost Doboj Kakanj in June 2017.[10] On 28 June 2018, Zahirović left Mladost after one year, 15 league games and 1 league goal.[11]
