Michael Olunga's LaLiga stay getting tougher

The former Tusker and Gor Mahia forward has only clocked 92 minutes in four LaLiga appearances

Kenyan striker, Michael Olunga loan spell in Spanish LaLiga is not going as was expected by many.

The lanky Harambee Stars striker has found it hard breaking into to FC Girona’s starting XI since he secured a season-long move from Chinese Super League last August.

Olunga’s absence in  Girona’s 2-1 lose to Valencia on Saturday sent yet another biting worry in the minds of his fans who have seen less of him this season.

The former Tusker and Gor Mahia forward has only clocked 92 minutes in four LaLiga appearances and 155 minutes for Girona in his two appearances in Copa del Rey.

Sitting 10th on the log, Girona’s priority will be to remain on the top next season while Olunga’s agent should start thinking of his next destination, even as hopes of returning to China remains a pipe dream following the introduction of foreign quota in the Asian nation.
