Kenyan most prolific striker Dennis Oliech has rubbished rumors doing heavy rotation on social media by revealing that he will be rejoining his former FC Nantes club where he is set to pocket a monthly pay of 250,000 Euros (Kshs30.4 million).
Oliech told E-daily that he will join the French Ligue 1 club before the end of this year on a one year contract.
He was quoted by the same online publication saying:
“I landed a one-year deal with French Ligue 1 club FC Nantes, which will see me stay at the club till the end of 2018. I will return to Kenya in May, 2018 during the break. My monthly salary at the football club will be 250,000 Euros (Ksh30.4 million) a month. The signing will cost FC Nantes 4 million Euros (Ksh486 million).”
Rumor mills went on the overdrive when pictures of a disheveled Oliech appeared on social media raising speculation that the 32 year striker had run broke.
Oliech said he is not disturbed by the rumors suggesting that he is broke.
“I have made news headlines – good and the bad – for ten years now. I have seen it all on mainstream and social media, and the online hate directed at me is not new. If anything, I do not consume gossip,” the footballer said.
