Kimani to skipper Harambee Stars



Mathare United skipper Anthony Kimani will captain the national team Harambee Stars in this year's Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in Uganda.

The defender, who was a last minute addition to the squad, will lead the side with AFC Leopards’ Bernard Mang’oli as his assistant.

Head coach James Nandwa says that the choice of the two players was easy to make, judging by their character and importance to the team. Nandwa also praised the duo and is adamant that they will give a good example to the others.

“Kimani will be captain with Mang’oli his assistant. The choice of the two was very easy, because they are first and foremost very good players and secondly leaders,” he said.

“Both are humble and elicit respect from their fellow players. I am sure that both of them will do a good job and with them, the team is in good hands.”

Kimani was glad and proud to be named Stars captain and hopes that his tenure will be full of success.

“To lead my country is a massive honour and tough responsibility at the same time,” he stated.

“I am very proud to do so and thank the head coach for giving me the opportunity. Hopefully, I will only talk about success while we are there and that the team will do well. We have a squad that is capable and has the talent to succeed. All we need is prayers from Kenyans and their support and things will be alright.”
