Hibernian's new striker Anthony Stokes reckons his boss John Hughes is as good a coach as Arsene Wenger or Roy Keane.
And former Arsenal and Sunderland player Stokes says he would not be surprised if Hughes were to one day work in the English Premier League.
"He's right up there," Stokes told BBC Scotland. "He'll definitely end up in England, it's only a matter of time.
"If he replicates half of what he did at Falkirk here, I'm sure he'll move on to bigger and better things."
Stokes has cited Hughes as the main reason for his move to Hibs from Sunderland, where he was signed by Keane after leaving Wenger's Arsenal.
The 21-year-old striker has taken a huge drop in salary to leave England's top flight but is delighted to be reunited with Hughes, who had him on loan at Falkirk.
"It's not just his managing style but he lives his life around football," the Republic of Ireland international added.
"When I was up here the last time, I felt so relaxed playing my football and it was just a good atmosphere around the club. I think that's what he brings to any team he manages.
"He likes to play football. Everyday in training, it's all about keeping the ball on the ground, moving it quickly.
"If I can do half of what I did the last time I worked under him, I'll be happy."
Stokes was thrown straight into the starting line-up for Hibs' 3-1 win at Falkirk on Saturday and showed glimpses of the pace and movement that helped him net 16 goals in 18 starts for Hughes' old team.
