Mo Sangare insists that international football can help inspire him to succeed in Livingston.
The former Newcastle United youth player signed an initial two-year deal with the Lions after leaving Accrington Stanley.
The 24-year-old, who was born in Monrovia but moved to England at 14, has seven caps for Liberia and two goals, including a dazzling effort against South Africa in March.
And the energetic midfielder admits that international recognition is what makes all the hard work at home worth it.
He said: “When you’re back home, there’s no place like home. When you are there, you feel welcome.
“It is very different from club football.
“It just shows you what you’re working for.
“For me personally, every time I come home, it reminds me of where I came from and what I work for.
“I’m excited to be in Livingston and I can’t wait for it to start and show people what I’m capable of.”
Sangare only left Newcastle last summer after six years with the Magpies.
Having had a previous loan spell with Accrington, where he was also a youngster before joining Newcastle, he made 22 League One appearances.
He added: “The atmosphere [at Livingston] it’s great to work for and if you’re trying to improve it’s a great place to come.
“My reaction when I heard that Livingston was interested was, ‘OK, let’s settle this, I’m ready to work.’
“I’m very excited. It’s something new, a new challenge, and I’m looking forward to what it brings.”
