Slightly half way past the current 2021/22 FKF Premier League season, midfield kingpin Peter Pinchez Opiyo reveals that the winning feeling is in the ranks of Nairobi City Stars.

According to the passer per excellence, Simba wa Naiobi is at a good place, and can even scale higher should the team avoid dropping off points that are deemed collectible.

“I must say that so far we’ve had a decent season and it can only get better,” said Pinchez before adding; “if only we can avoid dropping points that could have been crucial as far as the table (standing) is concerned,”

Beyond that pointer, Pinchez – City Stars top scorer last season with eight goals – appreciates the fact that team’s cohesiveness has brought about a perfect aura, hence improved results;

“Team chemistry is perfect and it’s a great plus to us. Because of that, we approach all games with a winning mentality. I must say it going on well for us and we can only make it better.” summed Pinchez

Thus far, Opiyo has featured in eleven games this season and has scored twice, a brace that delivered a 2-0 win over Mathare United in December 2020.
