Florian Kamberi has revealed that Neil Lennon played a big part in his decision to return to Hibernian on a permanent deal.
The striker proved to be a big hit for Lennon's side last season, scoring nine goals during his loan spell from Grasshopper Club Zurich.
The chance to continue working with the Hibs manager appealed to Kamberi, who said: "I like the success with the gaffer. I like working with him a lot and for me it was clear I wanted to come back.
"He is a winner and he wants us to be winners. It is good to have a coach who has fire. It is a great pleasure to work with Neil Lennon."
The former Switzerland Under-21 star could be forgiven for having one eye on his country's progression in the World Cup. Instead his focus is on pre-season training as Hibs kick off their Europa League campaign against NSI Runavik of the Faroe Islands in less than two weeks.
"It's not easy, that's why we are working very hard every day with the double sessions. If we can make a good start it will be very important.
"The gaffer will give us some information about them (NSI Runavik) but we need to look at ourselves to be ready for the game."
