Kenya Premier League Champions Gor Mahia have come out to fire more shots towards embattled striker Dennis Oliech just a day after the former Aj Auxxere man sensationally claimed that he is still a Gor Mahia player.
Through Club CEO Omondi Aduda, Gor Mahia have maintained that they do not have any association with Oliech days after terminating his contract over what the club termed as gross misconduct.
According to Aduda, Gor Mahia is done with Oliech and as such, the veteran striker should not waste his time thinking otherwise. Aduda said that Gor Mahia gave Oliech a chance to revive his football career only for him to take everything for granted.
“We don’t have any business to transact with the player. He was given the chance to revive his career at Gor Mahia but he has killed it on his own. We are done with him and don’t want anything to do with the player,” Said Aduda as quoted by Goal.
“Which team does he want to play for? Not Gor Mahia. Even the coach [Steven Polack] has already washed his hands
“He was not happy with the player. He has never seen the striker since he penned a contract to coach Gor Mahia, so you can imagine if Oliech was a Gor Mahia player or not,” he added.
Oliech has denied all the allegations labeled against him by Gor Mahia. He insisted that he missed training sessions due to an injury he sustained on his hand during a KPL Match between Gor Mahia and Western Stima.
“These stories you have been hearing are all lies and the truth of the matter is that I have never recovered from the injury on my hand that fractured, the bandage was just removed two weeks ago,” Said Oliech as quoted by Nation Sports.
Oliech also denied reports that he has been ignoring summons from Gor Mahia. He has blamed his current woes on his role in fighting for the rights of players at Gor Mahia. Oliech was rumoured to be among top players at Gor Mahia that were calling for a go-slow among players as a way to demand for their accrued salaries.
As the Oliech-Gor Mahia wrangles continue, the Club is preparing for it’s first KPL match of the season where it will take on brewers Tusker FC at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu.
Ahead of the clash, CEO Aduda has called on fans to turn up in large numbers as the team aims to get a positive start to the new season.
“Our focus now is the league opener against Tusker on Saturday. We want a positive start and are asking our fans to come in large numbers and support the boys,” said Aduda.
