Kenyan international striker Michael Olunga believes playing in the competitive Swedish top-flight has made him a better attacker.

The 22-year-old, who plays for Djurgårdens IF in the Allsvenskan, has hailed the pace of the game in the European country with the former Gor Mahia forward forced to quickly adapt to his new surroundings.


“It is my first stint in Europe, but compared to Kenyan Premier League then it is way faster, more physical and more technical but the higher you go the lesser the mistakes you make as a player,” Olunga told SuperSport.com.

“It all boils down to the individual player since there is no room for mistakes since this is professional level and there are four strikers or midfielders all fighting for a position which calls for level best in training for the eventual opportunity,” he added.

Olunga scored 12 goals in his maiden season abroad with the striker having already attracted interest from elsewhere on the continent.
