Harambee Stars striker Michael Olunga has been crowned August player of the month in the Japanese second tier league.
The 25-year-old former Tusker and Gor Mahia player enjoyed a fine form with Kashiwa Reysol in the month, which was highlighted with a hat-trick against Renofa Yamaguchi.
In total, Olunga has scored 14 times this season.
He thanked his teammates for the award.
“First of all, I would like to thank God for being able to win the MVP this month. And thanks to the teammates and coaching staff who supported me, I always enjoyed a good game.
“I was so honored to have received this honor because of the presence of the entire Resol family with supporters, and the most impressive game in August was a hat trick.
I was able to play a fantastic game against Yamaguchi on August 10th, and the best goal was a heading shot against Nagasaki on August 17. I was able to decide the ball,” Olunga said.
