After a stellar 2020/21 season, mid lynchpin Peter Pinchez Opiyo has renewed his contract at Nairobi City Stars for yet another term.

Pinchez joined Simba wa Nairobi in January 2020 for a season and a half, then penned a new one-season deal after the club earned a promotion to the Kenyan Premier League.

And now, at the end of the first premier league season for City Stars in four years, Pinchez is staying on for yet another season.

“He was a key performer in the ended season. Other than top scorer with seven goals plus two assists, he picked up five MVP awards which was the most by any player,”

“Besides, his leadership and mentorship had a direct bearing on most of the young players in the team in terms of performance. All-round he is a great asset and a big plus to City Stars.” said team coordinator Samson Otieno

At the end of that season where Opiyo emerged as one of the top performers, top-scoring with seven goals and earning five most valuable accolades, the former Kenyan international opted for yet another season.

In the just-ended season, Pinchez featured in 25 of 33 games clocking 2,249 minutes.
