Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKF-PL) side Nairobi City Stars has appointed its new head coach.
Nicholas Ndubi Muyoti, a former Kenya national team captain, who was capped 17 times between 2001 and 2004, joins City Stars on a three-year deal.
The 45-year-old will be assisted by club legend John Amboko, who handled the club from mid-July 2021 after the exit of Bosnian Sanjin Alagic at the expiry of his two-year contract.
Muyoti joins Simba wa Nairobi after three years with Kakamega Homeboyz.
“When I left my last workstation, I was to seek an opportunity outside the country but when the possibility of joining City Stars came I had to change my plans,” Muyoti told the club’s official website.
“That possibility turned into a reality, and it excites me to be part of Simba wa Nairobi, a club full of stability and ambitions. I believe that together, we will achieve the set targets.”
For his part, chairperson Jonathan Jackson said that Muyoti is a skill and performance-based coach known for his leadership and good relationship with the young and senior players.
“He became the best fit for Simba wa Nairobi as the club has a balanced squad full of youth and experienced players. I take this opportunity to welcome him to Nairobi City Stars,” said Jackson.
Muyoti is set to lead City Stars in their opening match of the 2021/22 campaign against Sofapaka on Saturday, 25th September at Nyayo National Stadium, Nairobi.
