He started his career in FK Željezničar. He played for youth selections of this club, but he never got the real chance to play for the first team. So he went to FK Olimpik. Good games produced interest from stronger teams in Bosnia and Herzegovina and first he moved to NK Brotnjo. FK Željezničar officials finally recognized his qualities and brought him back to his favorite club on loan in spring of 2004. But after only several months, as a result of new disagreements, he signed a contract with HŠK Zrinjski Mostar.
