Soon after making the big leap from Kenyan fourth-tier side Total Spurs (Narok) to Nairobi City Stars, forward Brian Mose Nyambane has now trained his sights on being a regular starter for the club in the Premier League.
Mose joined Simba wa Nairobi on a season-long contract in the offseason from the Narok-based FKF Division Two side and has already featured in the opening two games of the 2023-24 FKF Premier League.
He earned his debut against Muhoroni Youth in Kasarani Annex as a second-half substitute and almost came off with an assist after his long and sharp throw in the dying minutes – that earned a penalty – failed to count as the spot kick was spurned.
Move and debut aside, he’s now on to something else;
“I’m fighting to be in the starting eleven,” he said candidly
“Currently, I am catching up with the system of play. I have given myself a target of four games after which I know I’ll be somewhere. By then I will have settled and I know the coach will appreciate what I can offer and hopefully, he’ll consider me as a starter,”
“I now have the opportunity and I want to make it happen for me as well as the club. As long as I get the time (to play) I will make it count,” he added
Against Muhoroni, Mose came off for flyer Samuel Kapen deep in the second half for his maiden top-flight bow. His second game was against Bidco United at the same venue.
“The debut was amazing. It gave me a starting point,”
“What I have seen so far in the two premier league games is the structure and style of play, as well as the organization, are very different from the previous leagues I have played in,” he added
Other than being a typical number nine, the left-footed Mose drifts to either flank and also plugs in as a number 10. Power throw-ins are his added advantage.
