Kenya captain and Al Duhail SC forward Michael Olunga has been named the Qatar Super League’s best player of the months (October/November).
His exemptional performance has now won him two awards after he scooped the AFC Champions League Golden Boot with nine goals.
The former Tusker and Gor Mahia forward appeared in five games between October 17 and November 3, where he scored five times.
Olunga played against Al Rayyan, Al Wakkrah, Al Shamal, and Qatar SC in October, before a game against the local giants – Al Sadd – at the beginning of November.
He scored one goal – in the 55th minute – against Al Rayyan when they won 3-0 at home on October 17. The other goals were scored by Edmilson Junior and Almoez Ali.
On October 25, Olunga, 27, scored the only goal of the encounter against Al Shamal. In the 2-1 victory against Qatar SC on October 30, the centre-forward scored the second goal for Al Duhail after Naam Tae-Hee had opened the score.
The towering striker scored two goals against Al Sadd at the beginning of November in a game that ended in a stalemate of 3-3.
In a tweet, Olunga expressed his gratitude and thanked his fans for their support.
