Congratulations To Olunga After Ranking As The Best Forward In The Whole Asian Continent

Kenyan top striker Michael Olunga has been on the rise especially after joining his first Asian football from Europe.Olunga who started his Asian football career with Japanese J1 league club Kashiwa Reysol has been ranked as the best forward in Asia by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

Olunga was ranked ahead of Brazilian duo of Leandro Damiao (Frontale FC) and Gustavo (Jeonbuk) who garnered 8.7 and 7.9 points respectively.Japanese duo of Kei Chinen (Frontale FC) and Ryogo Yamasaki (Grampus) who both garnered 7.9 points.

In Japan, Olunga became the first African player to win the J1 league Most Valuable Player award after his great performance with Kashiwa Reysol in the 2020/21 season which too assuared him of a golden boot award.

Olunga who left Kashiwa Reysol for Qatar's club Al Duhail SC early in 2021 has already netted over 20 goals through the league and AFC Champions League as well.This recognition is a major one for Olunga and Kenya as well ahead of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers in September.

Do you think Olunga might at some point decide going back to Europe with all this success in Asia? Feel free to share your views on the comment section and remember to share and follow for more news.
