On Monday, Goal reported that coach Hassan Oktay had reached out to the player to return to training as they try and sort out the stand-off with the club over pay. “I spoke to him (Dennis Oliech) and he is very positive. He has promised me that he will be available for training tomorrow (Tuesday). Dennis is a big name for Kenya, he is a big brand for the country and I need him back.

“I have also promised to help sort out the problems he is currently facing with the club. Those are small issues; that we can sort them because I don’t want him to stay away from the team,” Oktay told Goal in an interview.

Oliech, who missed the Caf Confederation Cup match against Hussein Dey of Algeria, is now in contention to face Tusker in a league match.
