“I’m good ‘Tino’. Nice to see you nice to be back. It’s just a wonderful experience and such a nice feeling to be back here. It’s like second home to me. My first home is in Kenya.

And this is what he said on his move to China, “It’s another different opportunity for me as a player and I really like it. I have settled well. There were some issues with my visa so I had to come back to Sweden to fix it. I will be traveling back in a few days as you know we're starting our league in  March so I'm really looking forward to playing with my teammates.”

Olunga’s Chinese club Guizhou Zhicheng will start the season at home against Shenyang Liaoning Whowin FC on Friday March 3.
