Nairobi City Stars had a false start to the 2021-22 FKF Premier League season after going down 3-1 to home team Sofapaka on Sunday 26 September 2021 away to Sofapaka in Wundayi, Taita Taveta.
It was a debut game for head coach Nicholas Muyoti who took over the reins of the team in the offseason.
While he was obviously disappointed with the result, Muyoti states the mistakes were duly noted and will be rectified before the next assignment.
“Bad start, but a very good eye-opener,” he said before adding; “We have time to work on our mistakes before our next match,”
“At least we managed to pull a goal back and I am optimistic that the next result will be positive,” he added
As per the league calendar, the league takes an international break after the opening weekend to allow the national team adequately prepare for two 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
City Stars next premier league assignment is on Sunday 17 October 2021 against promoted Kenya Police at Ruaraka starting 3 pm.
