After a short spell at FK Sarajevo, he returned to Šibenik. On 1 June 2016, he and Jamilu Collins missed their penalties in a penalty shoot-out against Istra 1961 and Istra gained promotion, while Šibenik remained in the second tier.
On 20 June 2019, he signed a two year contract with FK Željezničar Sarajevo. Alispahić made his official debut for Željezničar on 20 July 2019, in a 0–0 home league draw against FK Borac Banja Luka.
After an impressive finish to the 2009-10 season with Šibenik, including some spectacular goals, he received his first call-up to the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team in May 2010 for the friendly matches against Sweden and Germany.
He made his debut against Sweden, coming on as a substitute in the second half.
