Following on from yesterday’s look at Graeme Shinnie, I’m taking a look at how Hibs striker Florian Kamberi has done this season.
It has been a frustrating campaign for the Swiss forward. He hasn’t hit the heights expected of him after he signed permanently at Easter Road last summer. Fans and player alike would have hoped for a bigger impact.
He didn’t have a brilliant season, but there were some positives, in what was an average season for Kamberi.
Marc McNulty helped, but ultimately, Kamberi did nothing special
The arrival of Reading forward Marc McNulty helped the Swiss talisman endlessly. It gave him the partner he desperately needed, after him and Jamie Maclaren just didn’t click in the first half of the campaign.
It also seen him take a wide role at times. He impressed initially out wide. It became clear why he hasn’t played there for much of his career towards the latter stages of the season.
His partnership with McNulty was good, however, he still managed just eight goals and one assist in 33 games in the league for Hibs this season. He’s looked low on confidence at times.
The Swiss forward has been a far cry away from the man who scored nine goals in 14 appearances during the 2017/18 season.
When Kamberi shows up he will score goals for fun. It just hasn’t quite worked for him this season for the most part. The striker has only turned in a handful of decent performances over the course of the 2018/19 campaign.
Factor in the fact he didn’t score in his last nine Premiership outings, Kamberi will be eager to move on quickly from this campaign.
