Philemon Otieno extends Gor Mahia contract

Philemon Otieno has put pen to paper for another two seasons at Kogalo. He is also back in training. Otieno was injured during a Harambee stars friendly and required surgery. When it came time to pay for the surgery, FKF initially agreed to send him to France for the surgery. But a month later Both FKF and Gor Mahia pointed fingers at each other saying each should pay for the surgery. It took the intervention of fellow players like Johana Omollo and Michael Olunga for Otieno to get the surgery he needed.

Additional reporting from the Nation

A senior member of the club’s technical bench – requested to remain anonymous – confirmed the development, saying the 27-year-old player” still has a lot to offer the team.”
Otieno, whose four-year contract with Gor was to elapse at the end of January, has been out of action since August 2019, following a knee injury he picked while doing duty for the national team.
He underwent a reconstructive surgery in September the same year.
Speaking on Monday after holding his first training with the team at Camp Toyoyo grounds in Nairobi, Otieno said his heart is still at the club and that he hopes to stay on.
Head coach Steven Polack also said he wants the former Ushuru man to stay at the club

  1. The idea of health insurance for players is idea that should be thought out very quickly by GMAF direct. I feel insecure to support a club that cannot treat it’s players. GMAF 00007

    1. GMAF aims at ensuring that the players, TB and their immediate families have health insurance by ensuring that:
      1) their NHIF deductions are remitted by the due every month,
      2) that the players have some salary/loss of income insurance so that a player still receives his salary while recuperating. This eases the financial burden on the fund from directly paying an injured player.
      All this is only possible if GMAF progresses towards/reaches its targeted membership of 25k members each consistently contributing 125/- per month.

  2. GMAF Direct Summary
    Contributions. = 321,732.00
    Less Expenses
    Bank Charges & Interest. = 2,487.25
    Players & TB Salary Support TAV3. = 200,000.00

    GMAF balance. = 119,244.75
