Nairobi - Frank Nuttall is confident new signing Michael Olunga will soon be
firing on all cylinders, despite failing to find the back of the net in
his six matches so far.
The former Tusker FC ace has come under plenty of criticism since his
January move to K'Ogalo after proving hugely wasteful in front of goal,
most notably in the DSTV-SuperSport Super Cup and CAF Champions League.
having set up all three goals in the 2-1 Super Cup win over Sofapaka
and 1-0 continental victory against CNaPS, Nuttall has every confidence
the forward will soon find his best form.
"The job of a striker
is not only to score but to create opportunities for other players. I'm
really impressed with Olunga's focus of running through off the ball and
support he offers to the team," Nuttall told Capital Sport.
a believer the more chances a striker get the more experience they gain
and they make some evaluation from that. I'm sure that's what Olunga
and other strikers are going."
The coach added: "He has the
ability to get in scoring positions and as well as that, he is young and
fairly inexperienced and has played well. He is one of the players that
we can look upon to in our squad selection."
