Mehmed Alispahić (born 24 November 1987) is a Bosnian footballer who currently plays for Al-Ahli Manama.[1]

Career[edit]

Alispahić began his career with NK Iskra Bugojno in the First League of Bosnia and Herzegovina.[2] He joined Croatian Prva HNL club HNK Šibenik in 2008. In May 2011, Alispahić agreed a transfer to Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb, where he stayed for a year and a half, before moving on a free transfer to HNK Rijeka in late December 2012. After a short spell at FK Sarajevo, he returned to Šibenik. On 1 June 2016, he and Jamilu Collins missed their penalties in a penalty shoot-out against Istra 1961 and Istra gained promotion, while Šibenik remained in the second tier.[3]

International career[edit]

After an impressive finish to the 2009-10 season with Šibenik, including some spectacular goals, he received his first call-up to the Bosnia and Herzegovina national football team in May 2010 for the friendly matches against Sweden and Germany.[4] He made his debut against Sweden, coming on as a substitute in the second half.[5]
