The former Harambee Stars tactician says he did not quit the sugar millers to join politics insisting that he is just 'resting' after a long 2012 season
Otieno denied that he had left the sugar millers to join politics insisting that he is just 'resting' after a long season.
"We parted ways with Sony Sugar by mutual consent because I had things to do that required me to be in Nairobi. It is not true that I left so as to join politics but I need to rest."
"Iam still open to any coaching offer which comes my way because this is my life."
Otieno left Sony two weeks ago with reports suggesting that he was going to contest for a political seat in Kariobangi come next year.
Last week, the coach is reported to have held a fundraiser to raise money for his campaign kitty. He was replaced at Sony by former Tusker coach Sammy Omollo who has since got down to business.
Before joining Sony, Otieno was at Gor Mahia and he helped the club finish runners-up in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) two years ago.
