Michael Olunga is stinking rich

The 28-year-old Harambee stars striker is the second highest-earning footballer in Kenya taking home a weekly salary of Ksh7.5 million.

Olunga made headlines while playing for For Kenyan football giants Gor Mahia. His success at K’Ogallo saw Swedish side Djugardens sign him in 2016.

He made only 27 appearances for Djugardens scoring 12 times. Chinese club Ghuizhou Zhicheng signed him after only one season in Sweden.

The Kenyan football ace only made 9 appearances for Ghuizhou Zhicheng scoring 2 goals before he was loaned to Spanish side Girona FC where he made 14 appearances scoring 3 goals.

In 2018, the Chinese club sold the Harambee Stars striker to Kashiwa Reysol for an undisclosed fee. Olunga’s star only shined brighter in Japan where he scored 58 goals in 72 appearances.

His goal-scoring streak won him the Golden Boot Award in the J1 League in 2020. The striker's impressive form attracted Qatari club Al-Duhail who spent nearly a billion shillings to buy him.

In January 2021, Olunga moved to Qatar Stars League champions Al-Duhail on a three-seasons contract for a reported transfer fee of Ksh896 million.

According to Olunga’s contract, Al-Duhail is reportedly paying him twice the amount he used to earn at Kashiwa Reysol.

In Japan, he used to earn Ksh15 million a month, meaning that Olunga now earns Ksh30 million a month at Al-Duhail, or Ksh7.5 million a week.

Only Victor Wanyama earns more than Olunga. Wanyama, who currently plays for Montreal Impact in Canada, earns a salary of Ksh £62,000/Ksh 9.3 million per week.
