Club careerEdit

Born in Sarajevo, SR Bosnia and Herzegovina, SFR Yugoslavia, Zubanović began his career with hometown club Željezničar. He started playing for the first team in the 1995–96 season as a youngster. He was regarded as one of the most promising forwards in the First League of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In 1999, Zubanović left for Turkey where he signed a contract with Karabükspor. After only half of a season, he returned to Željezničar where he stayed for two more years. Later, he played for İstanbulspor, Velež Mostar and Dibba Al-Hisn Sports Club, before returning to Željezničar once again in 2004.

Zubanović did not stay there for long, since he went to Poland at the end of that year.[1] From 2005 to 2007 he played for Zagłębie Sosnowiec where he finished his career.

The most memorable moment of his career came when he scored in the 90+3rd minute for Željezničar on 5 June 1998 in a Bosnian championship play-off game during season 1997–98 against crosstown rivals Sarajevo. That was the only goal of the game which brought his club its first championship title in independent Bosnia and Herzegovina.

International careerEdit

Zubanović also played for the Bosnia and Herzegovina U21 national team between 1996 and 1999, making 15 appearances and scoring 4 goals in the process.

Personal lifeEdit

Zubanović's son Faris is also a professional footballer who currently plays for Bosnian Premier League club Velež Mostar.[2]
