On the Move
Buljubašić out as CEO of FK Sarajevo in wake of takeover
by Jonathan Rest

Sabrina Buljubašić has stepped down as CEO of Bosnian Premier League club FK Sarajevo, two months after a takeover.

We would like to thank Sabrina Buljubašić for leading the club in recent years during which the club recorded some of the brightest moments in its history, such as the first league-cup double in the 2018-19 season. She was available to the club in both good and challenging times and showed exceptional loyalty. We wish her success in further professional and private endeavours.

Buljubašić (pictured) had been in the position for five years, but has left the club after her contract was terminated in a mutual agreement with the board of management.

 

She is a former international for Bosnia and Herzegovina, and is a qualified lawyer.

 

In a statement on their website, FK Sarajevo said: "We would like to thank Sabrina Buljubašić for leading the club in recent years during which the club recorded some of the brightest moments in its history, such as the first league-cup double in the 2018-19 season. She was available to the club in both good and challenging times and showed exceptional loyalty. We wish her success in further professional and private endeavours."

 

Until a new CEO is appointed, FK Sarajevo will be run by an executive committee, led by majority owners Ismir Mirvic and Vincent Tan, via his right man Abdul Jalil Abdul Rasheed, the CEO of Tan's Malaysian conglomerate Berjaya Corp.

 

Tan, who owns Cardiff City in England's second division, owns around 60% of FK Sarajevo and Mirvic 30% in a takeover deal that was completed in August.

 

Upon her exit Buljubašić said: "From the first to the last moment in the club, I tried to always put the interests of the club in front of everyone. I am grateful for the opportunity given to me a long time ago by Tan, and then given by other voting rights holders, and I leave knowing that the club remains in good hands. I have a lot of experience and knowledge with me.

 

"During the past years I had the best experiences with the club, but also overcame difficult obstacles and created preconditions for new ventures and visions. FK Sarajevo, led by the new management, I wish success in achieving visions and goals."
