Olunga, who features for Al Duhail in Qatar scored nine goals in the 40-team tournament held between April 14 and November 23 this year. All his goals came in Group “C” of the West Region held in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Olunga’s feat of nine goals in six games makes him the first Kenyan and Al Duhail player to win the prestigious award, scoring in every group stage game with his goals coming from set-pieces, distance, inside the area or via headers.

The striker scored one goal each against Al Duhail’s two opening matches against Al Shorta (36th minute) and Al Ahli Saudi (53rd minute).

This was then followed by a first ACL hat-track for the Qatari club on match day three.
