Budding attacking midfielder Mohammed [Omar Ali] Bajaber aka Hamudi, 18, has joined Simba wa Nairobi on loan from Star Field Academy for the second leg of the 2021/22 season.
The charismatic Bajaber has been training with City Stars for the past six weeks and received the nod from the technical bench leading to his move.
“Bajaber came to us for training a few weeks back and it never took long for his unique qualities to come to light,”
“Though young, he has already shown good professionalism and character as evidenced by how he has already blended in well with the rest of the squad. We now expect him to translate what we have seen on the pitch to the premier league platform,” said head coach Nicholas Muyoti
Team coordinator Samson Otieno added his voice to Bajaber’s addition stating;
“Our technical bench made the office aware of the player and he comes in highly recommended. He now has the chance to showcase what he has at the big stage. We welcome him to the Nairobi City Stars family,”
Robert Muthomi, a Director at Star Field Elite Academy was elated at the move of one of their brightest talents;
“Mohamed has worked hard to get here, and we are confident that he will be an asset to City Stars. The fact that he gets to join a team that is looking for like genuine title contenders this season says a lot about his abilities.”
