Keeper Steve Njunge gets the thumps up after saving a penalty against Nzoia Sugar in a season opener on Sun 29 Nov 2020 in Narok. He was named MVP on Fri 11 Dec 2020 after a 2-0 win over Bandari

Goalkeeper Steve Njunge Ndungu was picked out as the most outstanding player for Nairobi City Stars at the close of the third round FKF Premier League game against Bandari on Friday 11 December 2020, at Kasarani.

Njunge, signed from Wazito in the offseason, was the toast for Simba Wa Nairobi in the Friday affair that saw Nairobi City Stars win the game 2-0.

According to head coach Sanjin Alagic, Njunge had a massive contribution to the final result.

“He made very important saves and was outstanding in the game. Those saves made a big difference leading to the vital win.” said Sanjin

Njunge acknowledged the toughness of the game but is happy at the end result.

“The game was even but the most important part is that we made use of the chances that came our way.” said the soft spoken custodian

Njunge becomes the third MVP for City Stars into the season after Salim Shitu Abdallah (vs Nzoia Sugar) and Peter Pinchez Opiyo (vs KCB)
