Bosnian coach Alagic back to lead City Stars in PL
- Under Alagic, City Stars were patched at the helm of the 19-team NSL log with 64 points from 28 rounds of play with a ten-point buffer by the time the season was ended due to Covid-19.
After leading Nairobi City Stars back to the Kenyan Premier League, Sanjin Alagic is back at the helm of the newly promoted side, having left the club in mid March.
Confirming his arrival, club CEO Patrick Korir said the Bosnian who had left the country due to the Corona Virus that disrupted the season, has signed a one-year deal that will see him take charge of the team during the pre-season and the rest of the campaign.
Under Alagic, City Stars were patched at the helm of the 19-team NSL log with 64 points from 28 rounds of play with a ten-point buffer by the time the season was ended due to Covid-19.
“We are excited to have him back. He is an experienced coach who understands our club values and ambition, we are looking forward to next season which we believe we shall do well in – in all the competitions that we will be involved in,”said Korir.
From the league schedule that was released last week, City Stars will play five western Kenya based teams in its first five fixtures, starting with a home game in Nairobi, against Nzoia United Sugar, then travel away to face Zoo, seven days later.
The Alagic led side will then face Kisumu All Stars or Vihiga United, Kakamega HomeBoyz and Western Stima respectively.
The Bosnian is however confident of a fruitful season.
“We are happy to be back in the Premier League after four years and we can’t wait to get the season started with our first game against Nzoia United,” he said. “We want to prepare for that first game like it’s a final then take it game by game after that.”
He went on :“Our target in our first season back in the PL is to make City Stars a stable Premier League outfit, one that will develop young players to a national level, with the aim of transferring some players to clubs abroad. We will stay focused and humble.
“Last season the club restructured and became very stable and organized and we are happy to continue with what we started then into the new seasons. We want fans to be aware of this and we are asking them for their support as we journey back into the Premier League,” Sanjin told the club website.
