Kenyan international Michael Olunga looks all set to join Swedish top tier side Djugarden IF and as he awaits the completion of his Visa to facilitate the trip, he is confident that he will do well in Europe.
Olunga confirmed that he will be holding talks with the team upon arrival in Stockholm and quashed the talks from Kenyan football circles that his move is premature, with some saying he should have waited a season or two.
The argument is based on the fact that former top KPL players have not done well after moves to Europe but Olunga’s reaction has been hard hitting, telling the critics to keep their advise to themselves as he looks to advance in his career.
“Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion and I know myself better. I have the will to succeed and I know it will come with hard work. There is no way I can be compared to other players who either failed or succeeded; I have my own book and I will write my own pages,” he said.
The striker scored a total of 39 goals for club and country in 62 games in 2015 and was named the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) Most Valuable Player.
