Kenyan international Michael Olunga is hopeful that his show for Djugarden IF in the friendly match against Romanian giants Steaua Bucharest was enough to convince the Swedish side to hand him a deal at the club.
Olunga is with the team in the preseason camp in Turkey and after weeks of trials, he was handed a start and justified it with a 25th minute goal as the teams played to a 2 – 2 draw.
He admits the change from Nairobi to Sweden has not been easy but is slowly getting used to the change and says he is ready to give his all for the club if handed a deal.
“It felt good. It was a difficult match against a well-established team playing in Europe for the most part. It was especially difficult after going two goals down but I thank God for giving me the energy to fight for my team and start our comeback with my goal.
“I look forward to a great time here now if they choose to recruit me, because I’m still a young player who has a lot to learn. The coach has given much inspiration to me, he has worked hard to get me to play that way. I am very happy and grateful for the opportunity to start the game as well,” the 21-year-old said as quoted on Fotbolldirekt.
Olunga was the 2015 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) Player of the Year after scoring 40 goals for club and country in the year.
