Gor Mahia striker Michael Olunga is said to have departed for South Africa where he will attend trials Bidvest Wits, a club with whom he has been linked to for the last two months.
Olunga’s rights are owned by Liberty Academy which is run by former Harambee stars coach Jacob Mulee.
“It is true that he is headed to South Africa.He will attend trials at Bidvest Wits and we hope that he will be successful this time round” Mulee said to Futaa.com
In the recently started SAPL, Bidvest Wits have won one and lost one games and are in 10th position. Last season they finished in 3rd position.
Mulee reveals that Olunga will be able to continue his studies at the University of Witswatersrand.
“We have received a lot of offers from various clubs but we believe this one suits him best since it offers him an opportunity to continue with his studies as well as play football professionally” continued Mulee.
Olunga is currently Gor Mahia’s leading scorer and the second highest scorer in the 2015 KPL. Gor Mahia will likely not earn any remuneration from Olunga’s transfer. But his departure offers an opportunity for other strikers to step forward and prove their worth.
