The midseason Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League break has been resourceful for Nairobi City Stars, the club’s Chief Executive Officer has said.
Patrick Korir says fatigue levels in the team were hitting a record high and the two-week break came at an opportune time for resting and recharging.
“The break has been very helpful to us because some fatigue was already showing in all of us. We have been training but with some rest days slotted in between since our last match. The rest was very important for everyone to recharge for the final kick in the season,” Korir said in an interview with Citizen Sports.
Korir also delved into the club’s form in March in which the club only won a single game in the four games they played, the win came against rookies Vihiga Bullets who are in real danger of relegation.
In the four games, Simba wa Nairobi only managed to score three games and the club’s CEO opines that their wastefulness in front of goal has been their biggest undoing.
The two-week break, Korir says, has given the club an opportunity to work on their attack to better their returns in the second half of the season.
“Our main undoing in the matches that we have played in March has been failure to score. We have been playing well, dominating matches but failing to get the ball in the net. That is something that we have worked on and I believe when the League resumes we will be more clinical in front of goal,” he added.
Nairobi City Stars are currently third on the FKF Premier League log with 38 pints and are next at home to Bandari on Saturday, April 2.
