My Background:

I was born on March 17, 1973, in Prijedor, Bosnia & Herzegovina. As a youth I was often seen playing with a soccer ball and developing skills on the pitch. Ultimately, I made the ball my best friend!

I joined the youth programs in the 3rd Former Yugoslavia Division to further my development. At 17, I was offered my first professional contract for FK-RUDAR that played in the 2nd Former Yugoslavia League.

In 1992 I joined 3rd Division SC Norderstedt in Germany and reached qualifiers for 2nd Bundesliga. My time playing for Germany from 1992 – 1997 gained me the experience and understanding of the multi-faceted aspects of soccer.

In 1997 I immigrated to Edmonton, Alberta. Where I quickly fell in love with the culture, people and country.

After playing for almost 12 years in Canada, an opportunity came for a new challenge teaching the skills and principles that I acquired to youth soccer players. This opportunity has allowed me to bring my passion and love for the world’s most popular game.
