A 19 year-old BH football player, Faris Handzic, recently left FK Sarajevo and signed for Beligan Westerlo. Speedy and skilled young player didn’t have a significant playing time on Kosevo, due to which he decided to change the club. His goal is to show his best in Westerlo and to deserve an invitation to U21 National team of BiH.
“Sarajevo offered me contract extension, which was correct, but I want to play and I think that it is time to change my environment, I had a few offers from BiH, as well as from Slovakia and Hungary. I had a contact with all of them, but I didn’t enter into the specific negotiations“, said Handzic.
Contact with the leaders of Westerlo started with the former BH national team player, Adnan Mravac, after which the cooperation had been agreed.
“Former BH national team player Adnan Mravac have been watching me on one tournament and mediated in my contact with the people from Westerlo. They offered me a cooperation and we have agreed very quickly. I signed a contract for a year and half with the option of extension to two more years. I am very satisfied with the conditions“, said now former player of FC Sarajevo.
