Former Gor striker Michael Olunga signs for Swedish club IF Djurgarden on 4-year-contract after trials where he managed to score 2 goals

Michael Olunga has signed a four-year contract with Swedish side IF Djurgarden.

The former K’ogallo striker has been on trial with the team for a few weeks in Djurgården and among others scored in training games against Steaua Bucharest and a dream destination to Alesund.

According to press release on club’s official website, The Djurgarden Sporting Director Bosse Andersson said: “Michael Olunga was a player that we followed in early autumn, and he had the qualities we were looking for.

“After a long process and dialogue as he came to the final here in January and has been in the business since, it’s where he slowly acclimated and developed.”

“He is very ambitious and purposeful, train hard and always want to learn and take the next step. “Then I think he made a fantastic impression as a person both on and off the pitch.

“The development potential is huge so the peace and quiet of our Djurgården environment he can develop into a striker for the biggest leagues in Europe. It is the goal of Michael himself and he has the characteristics required for it.”

Bosse Andersson obviously thinks a lot of the Kenyan national team player:  “He has an extreme ability to score, he will go a long way as a footballer.”
