The 2019/20 campaign will be a defining one for Hibs striker Florian Kamberi. It’s imperative that the Swiss talisman gets off on the right foot.
By his standards, Kamberi had a disappointing season last term. He scored 13 goals in 43 appearances last term, assisting on seven occasions.
Some Hibs fans may have doubts about the Swiss striker. It’s up to Kamberi to perform from the off to ease those fears.
Hibs forward Kamberi has to start like 2018/19 and find consistency
He couldn’t have started his last competitive campaign much better. He scored a hat-trick in a 6-1 win against NSÍ Runavík in Europa League qualifying last July.
A similar start is needed against Stirling Albion. After a frustrating campaign last time out, his confidence in front of goal may be rocked a bit. A couple of goals early in the Betfred Cup campaign would quell those nerves.
Consistency is something he needs to find too. After his blistering start in the Europa League qualifiers, he scored one in seven, before missing a couple of games with injury.
Kamberi came back with a bang scoring four in five, but then failed to hit the net in his next six. For someone as good as he is, Kamberi has to find some consistency, rather than scoring in fits and starts.
Everyone connected with Hibs knows what Kamberi is capable of. If he gets started on the right foot, and develops some consistency, he could become one of the Premiership’s top strikers this season.
