Why Gor Mahia has terminated Dennis Oliech’s contract

Gor Mahia FC has terminated its contract with their striker Dennis Oliech over misconduct cases, just months into his two-year deal at the club.

An official statement put up on their Website indicates that Oliech’s services at the club have been discontinued with immediate effect citing several cases of absenteeism, poor performance and other disciplinary cases.

Serious misconduct and continued poor performance

“In pursuance of the provisions of Clause 6 of your Player Agreement Contract entered into with Gor Mahia Football Club we hereby write to advise you that we have terminated your contract with immediate effect on grounds of Just Cause as also stipulated in FIFA Article 14 Regulations of the Statues and Transfer of Players. The grounds supporting the just cause are” reads part of the statement.

The Club outlined that his continued poor performance on the field of play, has also impacted their decision

“You are and have been guilty of serious misconduct and continued poor performance on the field of play especially you have without reason therefore and without prior permission from the Head Coach, the Team Manager or any other duly authorized Club Official absented yourself on numerous diverse days from training thereby denying the club the opportunity to field you as a striker,” added Gor Mahia.

Political Ambitions

The Kenya Premier League Champions, pointed out that his act of offering himself as a candidate for the vacant Kibra Constituency seat is likely to portray the club in bad light.

“You have offered yourself as a candidate for popular political elections, a move that is likely to portray the club in bad light, cause disaffection among club’s supporters and fans, a step that is inconsistent with and inimical to your standing as the club’s football player. Further, you have posted a photograph of yourself in the social media donning the clubs jersey indicating your political intentions,” said Gor Mahia.

Oliech joined Gor Mahia in February 2019, after being offered a monthly salary of Sh 350, 000 plus a Sh 3.5 million sign on fee which was to be paid in two installments.
