Mungai bullish after Bullets’ show

Left-back Herit Mungai Atariza is angling for more complete games as the 2021/22 FKF Premier League nears the home stretch.

Herit was buoyed by his first full game of the season at the weekend as Nairobi City Stars went past home team Vihiga Bullets 2-1 in Bukhungu, Kakamega, to return to winning ending a two-game losing streak.

Against Bullets, Herit earned his first start and went on to complete his first game this season.

“I am humbled and looking forward to many more matches,” said the soft-spoken defender

Beyond the recent game, Herit commented on what he anticipates this season;

“The season is going on very well. We will keep pushing and hopefully, this is our season,” he added

Head coach Nicholas Muyoti gave a comment on Herit’s first full show stating;

“He did very well. He was outstanding in some situations and showed good composure on the ball. I was impressed with his performance. With playtime he will gain more experience,” said Muyoti

Other than the Bullets game, Herit had only made a cameo appearance in the year-opening game against AFC Leopards at Nyayo Stadium after coming on for injured fullback Dennis Decha Wanjala
