Legendary Harambee Stars striker Dennis Oliech could make a dramatic return to Kenyan football in January 2019.
15 years after he last featured in the Kenyan league for Mathare United, Oliech could become 17-time champions Gor Mahia’s latest signing.
Oliech confirmed that talks between his representatives and Gor Mahia had been on-going over the past 10 days.
â€śI am excited about the return and playing for a big club like Gor Mahia. I want to help them on the continental level.
“If things work out well, the move should be concluded by the end of this week,â€ť he toldÂ Standard.Â â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹
Oliech further disclosed his hope that the move would see him play a role for Kenya’s national team which returns to the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in 2019 after a fourteen-year absence.
It was Oliech’s goals that fired Harambee Stars to their last appearance at the continental showpiece in Togo in 2004.
â€śComing back to the SPL also opens another possibility of playing for the national team Harambee Stars and I would be excited to play at next yearâ€™s Africa Cup of Nations finals,â€ť he stated.
After leaving Mathare United, Oliech went on to play in the Middle East before becoming the first Kenyan to play in France’s Ligue 1 for Nantes.
After Nantes was relegated, Oliech signed for Auxerre, another French club.
He was last in action two years ago during a short spell in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
