I had the honor and opportunity to win the Yugoslav title in the Sarajevo jersey as a player, and later as a coach I won the title of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It remains a major success, but there have been other events, matches … There were also those in which I did not play or which I did not coach and which I remember. Sarajevo – Hamburg, Sarajevo – Anderlecht, these were top-notch games. Of course, in addition to winning the title as a coach, there are also European matches that cannot be forgotten. I hope with all my heart Sarajevo I will hhave a bright future and I would like to wish Sarajevo Football Club a happy 71st birthday,” Musemic said for the official club page.(Source: Faktor.ba)last_img read more
