Coronavirus: How City Stars players are coping with the break

The National Super League has not been in place since Monday 15 March 2020 with players forced to device new plans to keep themselves fit in anticipation of the league resumption.

The move has not left promotion-chasing Nairobi City Stars behind with all of their players having a routine to follow despite the absence of their head coach Sanjin Alagic who was granted leave at the close of that week.

In an interview with the club’s website team, the trio of Noah Abich, Calvin Masawa and Anthony Muki Kimani all spoke on the current situation and the dynamics of operating from home.

Abich said: “We are all trying to adapt to it. This morning I was at my local gym for a workout with (Jockins) Atudo. I am following the program as it says and I want to believe the rest of the lot are doing the same. But working from home is tough. It’s not what we are used to.

Masawa who is one of the longest-serving players in the team after joining from Migori in 2011 said:

“On my part, I follow the schedule to the letter. It requires a lot of discipline to stick to the program. Those are the challenges that come with working alone from home.”

Muki said: “Working from home is a bit tricky because of this pandemic the World is going through. But again it’s fun at the same time because we get to tag along with our families who get to experience what we do on a daily.”

With the head coach out in Bosnia on leave, team trainer Grace Wang’ondu has been put in charge to check on the players.
