Right back Kevin Chumsy Okumu, 22, returned to City Stars in the ended week on loan from Wazito FC for the remainder of the season.
Soon after clocking a full 90 minutes during a round 64 Betway Cup tie against Mutomo Tigers on Saturday in Kitui, Chumsy revealed the drive that brought him back to familiar ground.
He provided an assist in that game to striker Ebrima Sanneh for the fourth and final goal as Simba wa Nairobi ended up as 4-1 winners.
“I’m glad to have started over the weekend in the Betway Cup which we won 4-1 and I got an assist in the match,” started Chumsy
“I’m excited. It’s another new chapter in my life,” he added on his return to City Stars before adding;
“Nothing is guaranteed but I’ve come here to work hard and help the team by bringing my experience. That’s the main aim. I just want to enjoy my football and get back playing again and get my feet back on the pitch.”
“I’ve obviously had a previous relationship with the manager (Sanjin Alagic) and the players as I was at City Stars for four years. I’ve played under Sanjin before, so he knows my qualities and what I can bring to the team,”
“It’s important that a player and manager have a good relationship. He’s got really good morals, he gets his team working hard and I’ve had a chat with him already and there are no guarantees- it’s down to me to put the work in and put the shift in, to get into the team and play well week-in, week out.” summed the youngster
Chumsy joined City Stars in mid 2016 but left at the expiry of his contract last year to seek a new adventure.
