Tusker FC striker Timothy Otieno has won the Kenyan Premier League Player of the Month award for November last year.
Otieno netted five goals in November, one goal ahead of Sofapaka’s Brian Nyakan, who managed four goals and Ulinzi Stars forward Oscar Wamalwa, with three.
The Harambee Stars forward scored one each against KCB, Western Stima, and Posta Rangers and a brace against Nzoia Sugar.
He expressed his excitement at winning the award after his impressive goal rush last year.
“I’m so happy to have won the award after an impressive run of goal scoring, ” Otieno said.
Tusker FC head coach Robert Matano congratulated Otieno, saying they would build on the winning spirit in the team so that that they can lift the league trophy this season.
The former Gor Mahia and Posta Rangers player is this year’s second top scorer on the KPL chart with nine goals, three goals behind Mark Makwatta of AFC Leopards.
He becomes just the third player to win the monthly award more than once in the last five years. The award is organised by the Sports Journalists Association of Kenya and sponsored by LG Electronics.
