Chumsy returns

Coach Sanjin Alagic looks on as Kevin Chumsy Okumu takes a throw-in in a past game

Right back Kevin Chumsy Okumu is back at Nairobi City Stars, albeit on loan from Wazito FC, for the rest of the season.

Chumsy served City Stars for four years but left mid last year at the expiry of his contract.

Return of the versatile Chumsy to Simba wa Nairobi is a big boost to the backline especially the right channel that lacked a natural fit.

“The beauty of his return is that he rejoins a setup that understands him well as he will find the same band of coaches and players he left behind,”

“He is most welcome home and now it is upon him to reclaim his old position in the team.” said team coordinator Samson Otieno

Chumsy, a key member of City Stars promotion lot last season, made his premier league debut while at Wazito during the clubs’ opening game against Kariobangi Sharks but found playtime hard to come by thereafter hence his return to a team he joined back in mid 2016 from Young Rovers.

While he was away, the right back position was interchangeably claimed by Wycliffe Wiked Otieno and Azizi Okaka.

After training for a few days, Chumsy is in line for a game in the domestic cup – Betway Cup – when the team travels to face Mutomo Tigers in Kitui on Saturday 13 February 2021.

He will don jersey no. 19 vacated by Jimmy Bageya who has since left the club.
