Nairobi City Stars skipper Anthony ‘Muki’ Kimani has issued a rallying call; for fans to turn out and give the team a shouting boost as they seek to consolidate top spot in the National Super League (NSL).
Muki, who rejoined the team in the offseason making a return to the club after ten years, states fans are an integral part to the team.
He wants them to come out in numbers for the team’s games be it at their home base at Hope Centre in Kawangware or at the Camp Toyoyo in Jericho, and in other venues they can access.
“Fans ndio utupatia boost kwa ma games as the 12th player. Wakicome inapatia players morale ku perform better. Nawa show wacome kwa wingi na waendele kutusupport,” said the former Sofapaka and Bandari midfielder who has been capped ten times by Kenya.
Since his return to the club, Muki has been a key asset to coach Sanjin Alagic’s setup starting the first 12 games till a suspension saw him miss match day 13 and 14 against FC Talanta and Ushuru, respectively.
At the end of the months of September and October, Muki – the 2010 Kenyan Premier League midfielder of the year – was the best in assists in the NSL as per a report released by Football Kenya Federation (FKF). He scored his debut goal in match day 7 in Naivasha in a 3-2 romp over hosts Kenya Police.
He is expected to return to Simba Wa Nairobi’s lineup on Monday 18 November and reclaim his position from Elvis Ojiambo, and armband from Salim Shittu Abdalla, when the team host’s Muranga SEAL at Camp Toyoyo at 4pm EAT.
