"Last season I managed to score six goals before that run was cut short by an injury that put me out for quite some time. However I am now ready and want to do better this year and get more goals.

"I’m back at Gor Mahia, with one of the best coaches, and my first target is to get into the first team. After that, definitely it is all about working hard and getting goals on a regular basis," he tol Goal.

Otieno will have to compete with George Odhiambo, Jacques Tuyisenge, Meddie Kagere and Jean-Baptiste for a starting berth.
