Hibernians FC have appointed Branko Nisevic as their new first-team coach, the Times of Malta can confirm.
The Paolites have been looking to appoint a new coach since the end of last season when they decided not to continue with Silvio Vella, who had replaced Andrea Pisanu earlier in the year and led the side until the end of the season.
Hibernians took some time before finding the perfect man to lead the side in the 2023-24 campaign and identified Nisevic as the ideal candidate.
The Serbian coach was without a club after he was relieved of his duties as coach of Ħamrun Spartans despite leading them to the Premier League title last season with a record margin of 19 points and also steering the team to an historic berth in the Play Off round of the UEFA Conference League.
It is understood that Nisevic had initially pondered the possibility of continuing his management career abroad but has now decided a return to his former club Hibernians.
In fact, the former defender has a great past at Hibernians as he donned the colours of the Paola club and helped the team to the Premier League title in 2002.
The Serbian also returned to the club as a coach in 2012 where he spent three seasons in charge and helped the team to win the Premier League title in 2015.
Nisevic concluded negotiations with the Paolites and is set to take charge of his first training session with the team on Monday evening.
