City Stars axe four players



Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Nairobi City Stars FC have dropped four players from their squad ahead of the new season.

Fisa FC (Nairobi Provincial League) winger Ibrahim Kitawi, who was on-loan to the Kawangware-based outfit, Francis ‘Jakambare’ Akango, Duncan ‘Macheda’ Owiti and Alex Nyamweno have all parted ways with the club.

Confirming the news, head coach Bye Wadda said that he wanted to maintain a lean squad that he would be able to handle effectively.

“I want to have a squad of 27 players at most and I therefore had to release several players,” Wadda said.

“I had said before that only the players that showed dedication and worked hard in training would remain in my team. It will be a tough season and I have already set my targets for it and I therefore need a squad of dedicated players to achieve the goals.

“All four are good players and I know they will find clubs soon. I thank them and wish them well in their endeavours,” added the Gambian, who is targeting a top-eight finish in the upcoming campaign.

Nairobi City Stars finished 13th in the sixteen-team Kenyan top tier standings last term with 29 points from 30 matches.
