Oliech’s big move to Gor Mahia now in doubt

The much hyped move by former Harambee Stars skipper Dennis Oliech to Kenyan champions Gor Mahia might not happen after all, it has now emerged.

This follows reports that Oliech has failed to turn up at the club for a mandatory fitness assessment.

According to, the Kenyan champions – still smarting from the recent elimination from the prestigious Caf Africa Champions League – are yet to engage the player after he failed to honour an invitation to train with the first team.


“The truth is we have not talked to Oliech. It was agreed that he must first train with the team for the coaches to access his fitness and whether he can help the club,” the website quoted club CEO Ludovic Aduda.

“I am told he has not attended any training session yet, and for us, it will not be possible to engage him unless we have a word from the coach. It is the coach who will give us the go-ahead to either sign the player or not,” Aduda said.

Oliech has not played competitively for the past three years and also recently saw a move to South Africa’s top tier side Free State Stars fail to materialise.
