Kenyan custodian Ian Otieno has joined Zambian giants Zesco United on a three-year deal.
Before the Zesco deal, Otieno, who has been turning out for Red Arrows in Zambia for the past two seasons, was rumoured to be nearing a move to Zanaco.
“Zesco gave me a better deal that I couldn’t turn down. I am happy to join the club and ready to fight for my position and win titles,” Otieno.
The former AFC Leopards and Posta Rangers custodian will however have to fight for a starting position with regular shot stopper Jacob Banda, but says his mission is to get better.
“Banda is most definitely a good and experienced goalkeeper that I have massive respect for. He will help me get better and I believe the competition for places is healthy for the team,” Otieno said.
The goalkeeper joins fellow Kenyan players Jesse Were and David ‘Calabar’ Owino at the Ndola-based club.
