There is a long tradition of handball duels between these two clubs, a neighbor’s derby and I hope we can win. Bugojno started playing handball. The BiH league is full of stands. Both at our and Sloga matches. There is talk of handball, Saturday is reserved for handball. The whole of Bugojno lives for our matches and it is very nice to be in such an atmosphere every day, “Klis points out at the beginning of the interview. Klix.ba.

After a season in the First League of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina came an invitation from Iskra Bugojno to continue his career in the city of Vrbas.
“I went through those youth selections in Krivaya already. I suddenly got into the senior squad and somehow I expected it to continue. From the first league of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina I quickly moved to the Premier League of BiH and played immediately for 60 minutes. Thank God. going to Iskra was a good move. Great competition also required more effort. I’m glad I made the most of it. Selector Schumann’s call arrived. The pressure is greater, the feeling is phenomenal, but I can say that I can handle it well with that, ”says Klis.
Moving to Iskra was a step forward in left-back careers, and leaving home was not easy for a young handball player.
“Of course it was difficult to leave Zavidovic and leave my family. I went young from my parents, but on the other hand I am glad about my career and my progress in sports. In Bugojno I have the opportunity to show more about Iskra playing in the BiH Premier League and I believe I showed that it all paid off, “Klis points out.

We are aware of what kind of system we live in and how much it slows us down in those intentions. it’s possible to make dreams come true with a lot of effort and work. I’ve trained a lot with teams and individually, behind four walls. The effort and work pay off. Everyone who believes in their dreams and works hard and hard to make it happen, I think they can do it. ” says Klis.
He says there is no such thing as a handball idol. He would love to one day play in the Champions League of the best clubs in the world and go all the way. It may not be that far, since some of the Bundesliga players have already shown interest in the young left fielder. He hopes to one day share a locker room with the best handball players in the world and learn more from them. He might have his first chance at the reunion of the national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and even if he is not on the final list of selectors Schumann, there is no doubt that if he continues this way, he will have his chance.
“It’s just one more motive for me and a testament to some good work both at the club and in the training. It gives me the strength and the morale to keep working and training even more, to be even better. Whether I go to Norway or not “At the moment, I’m proud of being in the planner’s plans and what I’ve done so far. I will continue to be worth the training and give my best on the handball courts and believe that the reward will come,” Klis says.
