Skipper Anthony Muki Kimani lead Nairobi City Stars to a 2-0 win over Nzoia Sugar at Narok Stadium on Sunday 29 November 2020 as the team returned to the top flight league after four years.
Muki, playing his 227th Premier League game, the first for City Stars since the 2009 season, and the first after his last premier league game while at Bandari in late 2016, led by example in scoring the first goal – the club’s 305th premier league goal – after 16 minutes when he finished off a Davis Agesa cross with a cheeky finish to beat diving Nzoia keeper Mustapha Oduor at the far post.
Two minutes later it was 2-0 after Oliver Maloba sneaked into the box to hammer in another Agesa delivery.
“It was the kind of start we had hoped for; a winning one. We are glad we achieved it,” said Muki
“The winning start reiterates our preparedness for the league even though we had been out of the top league for years. We can now approach the upcoming games with a lot more confidence.” he added
Muki returned to the club in mid 2019 and pushed their case for promotion from the second tier with, other than great leadership and experience, three MVP awards and as many goals and ten crucial assists.
