“This was the most difficult match of my life. Not even the numerous Harambee Stars games,” Oliech told Capital Sport just after the game against Mathare.He added; “This was my first match and the most important thing for me was the impact I was to make. People were expecting a lot and that made it more difficult. The competitive feeling is coming back slowly and I think I am building up nicely.”“Coming off the bench, from experience is very tough. But, I expect to start on Wednesday against Posta Rangers.”Oliech, still panting form the rigorous warm down he was put through as well as the other substitutes who played under half an hour said he was delighted to make his debut for Gor and furthermore mark a return to the Kenyan Premier League.Dennis Oliech dribbles towards goal during his debut during a Kenyan Premier League match against Mathare United on January 6, 2018.

It is the same now,” a delighted Oliech stated.Coming on, Oliech caused some jitters to the Mathare United backline and coach Francis Kimanzi admitted as much, that he had to guide his young backline to contain the mental fist-fights that came with the striker’s entrance.“It was a psychological thing which tried to disturb my boys but we had prepared well mentally for it, that we don’t care who plays but they play against Mathare United,” said the tactician.With a target of scoring more than 20 goals, Oliech says his biggest ambition is to help Gor retain the KPL title and personally for him to win a title after a long time in his career.“My focus now is on helping Gor Mahia win the league. Personally, I want to win a trophy because it has been so long since that happened. The last time I won a title was in 2010 when we won the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup in Mwanza with Harambee Stars. I want that feeling all over again,” he noted.Dennis Oliech moves around the pitch closely guarded by Mathare United defender Andrew Juma when he made his debut during a Kenyan Premier League match on January 6, 2018.

My focus is on Gor Mahia and helping the team do well in the league and continentally. That will come later,” he further stated.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Dennis Oliech points out tactics to his teammates when he made his debut during a Kenyan Premier League match against Mathare United on January 6, 2018.
