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.

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
