Gor Mahia have today signed striker Dennis Oliech.
The striker penned down a deal that will see him being part of the club for two seasons.
Oliech impressed the technical bench leaving coach Hassan Oktay with no choice but to sign him. Gor are short upfront and needed an experienced goal-poacher to lead their charge in the KPL as well as on the continental scene, where they have been drawn against New Star de Douala of Cameroon in Caf Confederations Cup knockout stage.
Commenting on the signing, club CEO Lordvick Aduda said: “We wanted to beef the striking force and we thought instead of sourcing for another striker outside the country, we can work with Dennis (Oliech) due to his experience and talent.
He went on: “The coach approved him and thinks Oliech will help him achieve what he wants at the club in terms of our striking force.”
Club boss Rachier on his part said: ”We signed Oliech on recommendation of the technical bench. They have assessed him and believe he’s a player who will add value to the squad.
“In striking we had a weakness and the signing of Dennis Oliech is meant to fill the gap. Of course there are different views on his signing but I’m working with the recommendation of the technical bench. He is the player with the quality and we wish him well at Gor Mahia.”
