The Sanjin Alagic coached side edged Nzoia Sugar 1-0 in Narok on Friday. The outcome stretched their winning run in top flight to five matches in a row.
“Our target 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,” Korir told Citizen Digital.
“We will stay focused and humble. We are happy to be back in the Premier League after four years, we are here to compete, our strategy is to take it game by game,” he added.
Meanwhile head coach Sanjin Alagic has praised the changes the club underwent before the start of the season that has brought stability and good results.

City Stars play Wazito in their next assignment and the Bosnian is upbeat his boys will deliver results.
