The meaning of «history of fk sarajevo»

Fudbalski klub Sarajevo (English: Sarajevo Football Club) is a Bosnian professional football club based in Sarajevo, the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina and is one of the most successful clubs in the country.

This article presents an overview of the club's history from its founding in 1946 to the present day, summarized in nine epochs.

Less than two years after liberation of Sarajevo from Nazi Germany, FK Sarajevo was established on 24 October 1946 as the result of a merger between local Sarajevo football clubs Udarnik (Vanguard) and Sloboda (Liberty), following an earlier joint meeting between the committees of said clubs and the Sarajevo sports society.[1] The club first appeared on the Yugoslav sports scene in 1946 under the name SD Torpedo that represented an hommage to Torpedo Moscow. The first Chairman of the newly founded club was Safet Džinović, while the positions of vice-chairmen were granted to Vojo Marković and Alojz Stanarević respectively. Furthermore, Josip Bulat was named manager.[2] The newly formed team, which inherited the results and league standings of Udarnik, which was previously ranked 7th in the Republic League standings, was joined by selected players from both Udarnik and Sloboda. Namely, Hodžić, Vlajičić, Šarenkapa, Pauković, Fizović, Konjević, Radović, Viđen and Mustagrudić from the former, and Mantula, Glavočević, Tošić, Pecelj, Novo, Strinić, Đ. Lovrić and Alajbegović from the latter. The team played its first match on 3 November 1946 against Bratstvo Travnik, winning the fixture 6–0.[3] Another historical assembly was held on 5 October 1947 when it was decided, on the proposal of then editor of the popular daily newspaper Oslobođenje, Mirko Ostojić, that the club name shall be changed to SDM Sarajevo, before it was finally changed to the current name in 1949. Furthermore, in September 1948 SDM Sarajevo was joined by Yugoslav footballing legend, Miroslav Brozović, who brought in a largely needed level of experience to the new team. The Mostar-native previously wore the black and white jersey of FK Partizan, as well as captaining the Yugoslav national team. Brozović was offered the position of player-manager which he accepted, turning his attentions to promoting the team to the Yugoslav First League.[4] Even though the team concluded the second part of the season without losing a single game, fans hoped for more persuasive results and weren't overly satisfied with the five draws that were mustered. Luckily, even this was enough for a first-place finish and a promotion to the top-flight after a play-off series.

Mate, I can't play for cash while listening to others telling me how to play. I'm grateful to them, they were fair and didn't make an issue out of it. I told them I can only play for Sarajevo.
