Kenyan striker Michael Olunga has made a surprising switch to China Super League side even after top Europe clubs such as CSKA Moscow had big interests in him.

Olunga’s deal is said to have gifted Djurgården 40 Million Kronars equivalent to Ksh 470 million .
Ideally China’s league is better known for money making players and those talents who have had their youthful ride in Europe. This makes Olungas choice baffling since he is barely 23 years old.
Fans expressed their disappointment on Twitter owing to the facts that Olunga had been fulfilling his wish to them for a success in Europe.
At one point he recorded a video arguing Arsenal’s long serving head coach Wenger to sign him in future.
If the world superstars are moving to china the likes of hulk and Oscar who is michael olunga not to be tempted by Chinese money

It was a bad move for Engineer Michael Olunga to move to Chinese League. Chinese league is for dying talents.
