Nairobi City Stars have been handed a massive injury boost with Stephen Njunge and Peter Pinchez Opiyo resuming training.
Opiyo has been on the sidelines with a groin injury while goalkeeper Njunge has been out of action with a knee injury.
“They are both back and have started light training albeit on the side of the rest under close monitoring. This is a start and with time they should be able to join the rest,” said team physio Brian Otieno Odongo
The players shared the joy of leaving coming off their lonely rest and recuperation program away from the rest of the lot.
“I feel much better now and I am happy to be back amongst my teammates who I had missed very much,” said Opiyo
“I am now concentrating on rehab. At least now I can move and run around. Hopefully, soon I will return to full fitness,” said Njunge
Both Opiyo and Njunge have not been considered for any game since matchday 24 against Bandari in mid-March 2022.
While Njunge has been ruled out of the season ending in mid-June this year, Opiyo is hopeful to grab playtime before then.
With the two back in training, the only other players out are striker Eric Ombija who is nursing a knee injury, Oliver Maloba, and Ronny Kola.
