Biography and club career


Early life

Salihamidžić was born to a Bosniak family. His father Ahmed and mother Šefika gave him the nickname "Braco" meaning "little brother" in Bosnian since Hasan has an older sister. He finished high school and played in the local club. Then, Salihamidžić moved to Velež Mostar where he stayed until 1992. During that period young Salihamidžić represented ex-Yugoslavia on U-16 level since at that time Bosnia & Herzegovina was still a part of Yugoslavia. The generation of young players in FK Velež Mostar that Salihamidžić was part of was one of the best ever, but the Bosnian war stopped him from making a single senior appearance for his club.

Since he wanted to move to Germany to get away from the war, he worked as a waiter in a local restaurant for six months to earn enough money for a ticket.


In November 1992, Salihamidžić came to Hamburg and with the help of his cousin Ahmet, he joined the youth team of the German Bundesliga team Hamburger SV.

Bayern Munich

He would stay at Hamburg until 1998 before moving to Bayern Munich. During his Bayern career he came on as a substitute in the 89th minute of the 1999 UEFA Champions League Final at this point Bayern were 1-0 up, all seemed well until two last minute goals from Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjær. Arguably, these weren't the finest moments of Salihamidžić's career.


On 15 January 2007, he signed a four-year deal with Juventus and joined them the following summer. He scored five goals in 37 appearances. On 12 April 2008, Salihamidžić scored two goals for Juventus in a 3-2 victory against Milan in a Serie A match.[1]

International career

Salihamidžić and the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team never qualified for a major tournament, including falling one goal short in a match against Denmark that would have enabled them to qualify for UEFA Euro 2004. He retired from the national team in 2006 with 43 caps and six goals.

Personal life

Salihamidžić has three children, Selina, Nick and Lara June, with his German-born Spanish wife Esther Copado. Francisco Copado is his brother-in-law[2].
