Kenyan international Michael Olunga has been voted the Meiji Yasuda J.League KONAMI Monthly MVP for August for his goal-scoring exploits that saw him net six times in six matches during the period.

The KONAMI Monthly MVP recognises the most outstanding player in the Japanese top-flight and Olunga’s unstoppable form in August propelled him to win the award.

“I would like to thank everyone involved in the J-League for being selected as the MVP for August of the Meiji Yasuda Life J1 League. I also thank my teammates, coaching staff, and fan supporters.

“It has been an unusual season because of the coronavirus but I will continue to work hard. I’m pleased with the continued development of the J-League and I will do my best to keep up,” Olunga told reysol.co.jp.

The Kashiwa Reysol player has scored 15 goals in 15 J-League rounds this season, at least six more than any other player has managed, helping his newly promoted into fifth on the standings.

After a largely quiet loan spell at Girona where he managed three goals in 14 appearances, Olunga has been explosive for Reysol helping them win the J2-League championship and top-flight promotion last year with 27 league goals.
