Former Harambee Stars striker Dennis Oliech has accused Gor Mahia management for lying to Kenyans after the club issues a statement indicating they had parted ways with the player.
Oliech has however dismissed the letter and insisted that his main reason for not attending training is because of an injury he sustained while playing for Gor which is yet to heal.
“These stories you have been hearing are all lies and the truth of the matter is that I have never recovered from the fracture, the bandage was removed two weeks ago,” Oliech said.
Oliech said contrary to the reports, the team manager has only called him twice and that he has been training with the team until the doctor advised otherwise.
“The team manager has only called me twice contrary to what is being said and even if I didn’t pick he could have texted me. I trained with Gor Mahia twice after they returned from Burundi and after advice from the doctor I had to stay away, the team manager knows that,” he added.
He insisted that he is still a Gor Mahia player and blamed the club for not being patient with him as he recovers from his injury.
Oliech accused some people at the club management for targeting after being on forefront in agitating for players’ rights.
Oliech also dismissed as false reports indicating that he is interested in the Kibra parliamentary seat.
Gor Mahia CEO Omondi Aduda on his part, insisted that the basis of their decision to show the striker the door was because of gross misconduct and failed attempts to reach him.
