Jasmin Burić became known to Polish fans primarily as a longtime player of Lech Poznań, in whose colors he played from 2009 to 2019. After the end of his adventure in Poznań, the Bosnian moved to the Israeli Hapoel Haifa.
Burić will replace Hładun
In the first season at the Israeli club, Burić was the main goalkeeper, playing all league games. In the second year of his stay at Hapoel, the 34-year-old first suffered a serious thigh injury, and then was unable to win a place in the first squad. He left the team after the end of the previous season. After becoming a freelance player, Bosnian initially struggled to find a new job. For the first half of the 2021/22 season, he remained without a club, although he negotiated with several teams.
Now Burić will return to the Polish Ekstraklasa. He signed a contract by the end of June 2023 with Zagłębie Lubin. The current number one goal – Dominik Hładun, will leave the club.

– Our team is joined by the experienced goalkeeper Jasmin Burić. I am convinced that he will bring considerable experience to the goalkeeping team. Due to the announcement that Dominik Hładun did not extend the contract and the uncertain health situation of Kacper Bieszczad, we decided to contract Jasmin, who will give us quality and security in the crucial position of a goalkeeper – said Piotr Burlikowski, director of the Zagłębie sports division for the official club website.
Burić played as many as 157 matches in the Polish league. He kept a clean sheet 67 times. With Lech Poznań, he won the championship twice, the Polish Super Cup, and the national cup twice.
This is not the end of changes in Lubin. The club also officially announced that there were changes to the training staff. After a break of several years, the team led by Piotr Stokowiec since December last year: assistant coach Łukasz Smolarow, goalkeeping coach Jarosław Bako, motor training coach Mariusz Szymkiewicz and sports psychologist Paweł Habrat.
