Gor Mahia have released a squad of 29 players for the new Kenyan Premier League (KPL) season.

A notable exclusion from the squad is defender Philemon Otieno, who is out injured after picking up an injury while playing for the Harambee Stars against Tanzania in the Chan qualifiers.

“We have not included [Otieno] in the final squad because he underwent an operation in France recently and might be out for at least four months,” Gor Mahia CEO Omondi Aduda told Goal.

The squad comprises of 24 Kenyans, two Tanzanians, one Ugandan, one Ghanaian and one Ivorian.

Gor Mahia are keen to defend the league title after starting their campaign with a resounding 5-2 drubbing of rivals Tusker FC in the league opener played a week ago.
