Nairobi City Stars coach Sanjin Alagic is delighted after his club earned a promotion to the Kenyan Premier League.
City Stars are set to be promoted to the Kenya top-flight league after the current season was ended as Gor Mahia retained the KPL title. The FKF president Nick Mwendwa declared the Greeny Army last week as the league could not be completed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus that has seen big leagues suspended.
Mwendwa also confirmed that City Stars, who were on top of the NSL before will earn a promotion to the top flight alongside second-placed Bidco United.
"I’m very delighted and proud of being Champions of NSL and securing promotion to the KPL, the place where NCS belongs," he said as quoted by the club's official website.
"First of all I wish to congratulate my players for the amazing job they did throughout the season, they are most deserving for this success!"
"This achievement was result of hard and dedicated work and it will not be possible without great support of our owner Jonathan (Jackson), CEO Patrick (Korir), coordinator Samson (Otieno), Foundation CEO Mwenesi (Musalia), and my coaching staff, our fans and all people in the Club who believed in us," he added
Ahead of the new season, whose start date is yet to be known, the third-placed team in NSL will play two-legged play-offs to determine which team plays in the KPL.
