Former Fulham manager has described the player as a "perfectionist", telling the Daily Mail: "He's always very disappointed in himself. That was the first thing we had to work on.

"He needs to keep his feet on the ground. He's a very level-headed boy."

Pajtim celebrated his 23rd birthday on 2 June, making him 14 years younger than his new love interest Nicole.

The Swiss footballer is the first person Nicole has been linked to since she and Lewis Hamilton called time on their on-off seven year relationship in February. While Nicole admitted that she was "devastated" by the split, it appears there is no bad blood between the pair, with Lewis sharing a sweet birthday message to his ex on Monday.
