His contract expired in December 2009 and he wasn´t offered extension. New coach of MFK Košice Goran Milojevič wasn´t interested in keeping Bašista in team, despite the fact that Bašista was Košice´s captain. Poor results broke his neck as Košice felt down to last spot that means relegation.
Bašista almost retired 2 years ago when medical exams unveiled irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia). Later he was given green light by docs.
A week ago he was given a trial with FK Anži Makhačkala in turkish Antalya but this move failed.
His agent Vladimir Varga recently told that Bašista was offered to sign with unnamed polish top division club but he refused.
