Odhiambo was recently appointed to take over from Zedekiah Otieno who ditched the club for KCB. The former Sony Sugar coach says it is now a challenge for him to continue giving his best to develop his career.
“This is another step for me to develop and to be honest I am really happy to have gotten this opportunity,” Odhiambo told Goal in an interview.
“Every coach certainly wishes to be associated with Gor Mahia in one way or another and I am not an exception. It is everyone's dream to coach Gor Mahia because it is the biggest team we have in the country.
“It is a challenge for me of course, but what I am sure of is that I will continue learning a thing or two.”
Odhiambo helped Sony Sugar to a top five finish last season despite having limited resources. The Sugar Millers have also lost Derrick Otanga and Kevin Omondi to newly promoted side Wazito FC.
