Samir is one of the most talented young footballers in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Recently, he was even voted the best footballer of Bosnian Premijer Liga in the U-17 category. He made his professional debut during 2012/2013 season, on 9th March 2013 in a league fixture against Rudar Prijedor and thanks to that he has become one of the youngest players ever to put on the maroon and white jersey. In January 2013 he went to FC Zenit St. Petersburg to play several trial matches. Afterwards he was very close to moving to Zenit, Russians wanted to keep the talented youngster, but in the end deal didn’t go through and Radovac still wears FK Sarajevo colours. He has also represented his country at U-17 and U-18 levels, now he is a member of Bosnia and Herzegovina U-19 national team.
“Every footballer has the desire to play for the strongest team one day, I am not an exception.”

At 17, he is very comfortable starting (when he does start) and playing at his position for FK Sarajevo. He got a fair amount of minutes this season. Unless FK Sarajevo bring in some other players at the DM position (they probably will), I see him taking the starter role sometime next season.
I don’t know what happened with FC Zenit Saint Petersburg. I kept reading articles about how they were satisfied with his performance, but, at the end, he didn’t transfer. The transfer fee would have been 250,000 euros.
At 17, he is comfortably playing for FK Sarajevo against the best clubs in the league. He got a fair amount of minutes this season, including a few starts. If FK Sarajevo don’t bring in anyone else in his position (somewhat unlikely), he will probably become a permanent starter sometime next season.
