Club careerEdit

Alispahić began his career with NK Iskra Bugojno in the First League of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.[1] He then joined Croatian Prva HNL club HNK Šibenik in 2008. In May 2011, Alispahić agreed a transfer to Croatian side GNK Dinamo Zagreb, where he stayed for a year and a half, before moving on a free transfer to HNK Rijeka in late December 2012.

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.[2]

After leaving Šibenik in the summer of 2018, he signed for FK Sloboda Tuzla in June of that same year.[3] After only one season of playing for the club, Alispahić left Sloboda in June 2019.[4]

On 20 June 2019, he signed a two year contract with FK Željezničar Sarajevo.[5] Alispahić made his official debut for Željezničar on 20 July 2019, in a 0–0 home league draw against FK Borac Banja Luka.[6]

International careerEdit

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.
