Kenyan International Michael Olunga has credited his success in Japanese league to settling well in the Country and blending well with the locals.
“I haven’t encountered any kind of hostility from my host ever since I landed here there is no racism and the people are very friendly, ‘he said.
Apart from the Asian cuisine which is very different from East Africa Olunga said that he loves the Japanese cuisine especially Sushi though he said he occasionally prepares Ugali the staple food in Kenya on Wednesdays.
Over the weekend the former Gor – Mahia and Tusker forward made history by scoring eight goals for his side Kashiwa Reysol in the J League.
Olunga also provided two assists in the match that saw Kashiwa demolish opponents Kyoto 13 -1 at the Kashiwa Stadium on Sunday, November 24.
Despite finishing the second tier league with the most goals OLunga helped the team get promoted to the Top League
This is the first time Olunga has scored eight goals in a single game and the first time he has scored more than 20 goals in his career with his highest previous tally being 19 goals he scored back in 2015 for Gor Mahia.
