We are proud to present our very first official 5MFBH Ambassador Faruk Hadžibegić, a former football player who spent most of his carrier in Spain and France and then managed several clubs in these countries and is now living between Paris and Sarajevo. Faruk Hadžibegić, is the second most-capped Bosnian football player of all times and the fifth overall most-capped player for the Yugoslavian national team. He has played for FK Sarajevo, Real Betis Balompié, FC Sochaux-Montbéliard SA and Toulouse FC amongst other teams and has managed both Bosnia & Herzegovina and Montenegro national teams along with FC Sochaux, Dijon, Real Betis, Bastia and other French, Spanish and Turkish football clubs.
Faruk loves his home country, and actively promotes Bosnia & Herzegovina within France but also takes every opportunity he gets to promote the country wherever he goes. Being an active advocate for B&H and sharing the same values as 5MFBH, it was only natural that Faruk became an official ambassador for 5MFBH; joining forces in improving the image of B&H abroad and advancing the social and economic conditions in our beloved Bosnia & Herzegovina.
The “5 Million Friends of Bosnia and Herzegovina” platform will provide a database of:
1. All persons who nurture the civilizational values of the Bosnian people and who are confirmed friends of Bosnia and Herzegovina
2. Database of companies in the diaspora that are owned or run by a Bosnian man or friend of BiH
3. Organizations & clubs in the diaspora and international organizations active in BiH
