    Dennis Salanovic, once regarded among the best winger prospects in Europe because of his blistering speed and dribbling ability. He signed with Atletico Madrid and quickly impressed for their youth team--earning a call-up to Liechtenstein's national team.

    Being of Bosnian decent the Savez quickly got to work on bringing him over to us. When Bosnia scheduled a friendly with Liechtenstein in Tuzla, Dennis and his parents were invited to lunch with the Savez where he pledged to play for us in the future. The next day he made his debut for Liechtenstein. Afterwards, Liechtenstein traveled to Russia for an official qualifier and Dennis was listed as questionable because of injury, raising Bosnian's hopes that he wouldn't play and get cap tied, but he did end up playing and declared his allegiance to Liechtenstein.

    Shortly after, he was released by Atletico Madrid and signed with Croatian club Istra 1961, where he failed to win a place in the first team was forced to play for the reserves. After a year at Istra Dennis was released and signed with FC Balzers in the Swiss 4th league, currently on track to relegation into the fifth league.

    It would be funny if it wasn't utterly sad and pathetic. We can make a whole 23-man roster of such cases.

    Another loss is Adin Dzafic, who went from being the under-21 captain to playing for jedinstvo bihac i think.

    Anid Travancic was once a highly touted attacking midfielder known for his skillful dribbles and quick movement. He was scouted by several clubs, including Werder Bremen, many thought he had similar skill set to Said Husejinovic, but at 15 kilos less. He started off his career at Celik Zenica before moving to Croatia as a teenager and signing with NK Zagreb. After impressing in the youth ranks at Zagreb, he transferred to Croatian giant Hajduk Split. After failing to break into the team, he left and signed with Lokomotiva Zagreb. When he failed to break into Lokomotiva's first team he decided to go back home and sign with Celik Zenica again, where he would break into the first team and have several terrific displays.

    After much speculation and trials abroad, including Crevena Zvezda, Travancic signed with FK Sarajevo, who had just recently been purchased by Malaysian businessman Vincent Tan.

    After transferring to Sarajevo Travancic started to make much more news off the field, as his clubbing and drinking started to concern the club and supporters. Travancic was mored focused on becoming a singer and "living the life style" than training and getting game minutes. He was drinking heavily, smoking, missing training sessions and was completely out of shape. Sarajevo loaned him out back to Celik, hoping that being away from the distractions would help him regain form and focus. This did not work and eventually he took a break from football for a year in the summer of 2014 to focus on becoming a singer. After that failed venture, he went back to football by signing with lower league club TOSK Tesanj. His problems escalated when in 2015 after a night of heavy drinking and a fight with his milf girlfriend at the time, Travancic went out on to a balcony of a local night club and shot several rounds into the air from his pistol. He was later arrested for the incident.

    He then left Tesanj and signed for another lower league club Proleter Teslic. After regaining some form he earned a transfer to FK Novi Pazar in the Serbian Super League. After couple good performances, Travancic went missing after a match with none of the players or coaches knowing what happened to him for over a week, eventually he resurfaced. Having worn out his welcome in Novi Pazar, Tranvancic joined Serbian club Radnicki Nis, where he currently plays today as an attacking mid at the age of 23.

    At least most of our "big time" talents are consistent in their career paths

    I searched but couldn't find them. Last time I saw them was almost two years ago on the sportsport forum.
