Michael Olunga, Harambee Stars striker who plays professional soccer in J1-League, Japan, has been crowned the league’s Most Valuable Player (MVP).

Olunga plays for Kashiwa Reysol. He scored 28 goals in the now-concluded season, shoring up his team to seventh-place finish. “I want to thank God for this opportunity and blessings throughout this season,” said Olunga. “I would like to thank the people at Kashiwa Reysol for their support. I am very honored to be Kashiwa Reysol’s first top scorer and the first African MVP.”

In an interview with Goal, Olunga, 26, spoke about the future and his hopes for African football. “I hope that what I have achieved will have a positive impact on Japan and on the rest of the world. I hope that the J-League will continue to be the best football in Asia and that more and more African players will play in it.”
