Harambee Stars Captain Michael Olunga Wins Golden Boot in Qatar Stars League after Netting 24 Goals.

Harambee Stars captain Michael Olunga playing for Qatar side Al-Duhail won his first Golden Boot Award in the Qatar Stars League (QSL) yesterday evening.

The Qatar Stars League 2021/2022 season came to an end yesterday evening with the Kenyan striker topping the scoring charts with 24 goals.

Olunga showed exactly why Al-Duhail broke the bank for his signature midway through last season when he joined them from Japanese side Kashiwa Reysol in January 2021.

The former Gor Mahia man scored six goals in the nine matches he played in the 2020/2021 campaign.

Olunga, 27 scored 24 goals in 20 games, an average of a goal in every match he featured in.

His closest challenger, Ghanaian international Andre Ayew who plays for rivals Al Sadd, finished nine goals behind the Kenyan international star.

Ayew's teammates Akram Afif and last season’s top scorer Baghdad Bounedjah came third and fourth in the Golden Boot race after netting 14 and 13 goals respectively.

The player also boasts of being the only player in the history of the league to have scored five goals in one half of a match.

Earlier on, Michael Olunga won the 2021 Asian Champions League Top Scorer award with 9 goals.
