Hibs midfielder Gael Bigirimana has admitted that he hopes to break into the Hibs side before the end of the season and help Paul Heckingbottom’s side.
The Burundi international thinks helping the side meet their aims will be “good” for him – but acknowledges they are doing well at the minute.
“The team is obviously doing well and it is hard to break into, but it is up to me to work hard and earn my place in it,” Bigirimana told Hibs’ official website.
I want to help the team and if I can then it will be good for me. There is more to life than football at the end of the day. I have my faith, my wife and daughter, and my national team, but, God willing, I will get to help the club before the end of the season.”
Bigirimana hasn’t featured for the first-team since February and with only five games left in the campaign, time is running out for him.
The 25-year-old will face tough competition to get into the side and may have to resign himself to a chance to shine from the bench.
If he does get his chance, he’ll be hoping to get up to speed quickly before representing his country in this year’s African Cup of Nations.
