Mehmed Begzadić (born 5 January 1993) is a Swiss-Bosnian professional footballer currently playing for FC Locarno on loan from FC Lausanne-Sport.

Club career[edit]

Begzadić began his playing career at Yverdon-Sport FC and rose through the youth ranks, soon playing regularly for the reserve team and making a breakthrough into their first team in 2010. He made his league debut for Yverdon-Sport on 14 April 2010 against Servette FC in a 2-1 loss. In the later part of the 2009-10 season, Begzadić went on loan to FC Baulmes, making one appearance. Following his time at Yverdon, he transferred to Swiss Super League club FC Lausanne-Sport in July 2011. He made his league debut for Lausanne-Sport on 21 July 2012 in a 1-0 home loss against FC St. Gallen, coming on as a substitute for the final 19 minutes. During the 2012–13 season, Begzadić also featured for the reserve team.

International career[edit]

Despite having played for Switzerland at under-19 level, Begzadić decided to change his allegiance in order to compete for Bosnia and Herzegovina. He was called up for the under-21 team in order to play a practice match against the under-19 team in February 2013.[1]
