Kenyan football star Michael Olunga, the captain of the national team, is currently enjoying a well-deserved vacation in Europe after an impressive season in the Qatar Stars League.
Olunga, who plays for Al-Duhail in Qatar, not only led his club to the league title but also emerged as the top scorer of the season, garnering much praise and admiration.
After receiving the prestigious “Mansour Muftah Award” at the QFA (Qatar Football Association) awards ceremony, Olunga expressed his gratitude and humility, emphasizing the importance of hard work and maintaining a clear vision for success.
Following the event, he embarked on a tour of several European countries, taking time off to relax and explore various holiday destinations.
Five days ago, Olunga found himself in Spain, where he delighted in visiting several picturesque tourist locations. Sharing his experiences on social media, he geo-tagged photos of himself relaxing at Gran Vía, Madrid, España, Parque del Retiro, and Boadilla Del Monte, España. Basking in the warm weather and scenic ocean views, he enjoyed the leisurely moments of his vacation.
Continuing his European adventure, Olunga then traveled to Italy, immersing himself in the rich history and culture of the country. One of his stops included the famous Duomo di Milano in Milan, a grand cathedral also known as the Metropolitan Cathedral-Basilica of the Nativity of Saint Mary. Construction of the Duomo began in 1386 and concluded in 1965 after renovations following a fire.
It stands as the largest church in Italy, symbolizing a gift to the noble and working classes who endured hardship under Viscount Barnabo.
Within the Duomo, Olunga marveled at numerous monuments and artworks, including the statue of Saint Bartholomew Flayed, three magnificent altars by Pellegrino Pellegrini, and the Gold Madonna, among other treasures.
The cathedral remains under the administration of the Archdiocese of Milan, serving as a significant religious and cultural landmark.
Olunga’s vacation also included spending time at Salvatores and Clandestina, as indicated by his geotags. With an estimated monthly salary of approximately Sh8 million in Qatar, the footballer is able to afford a luxurious lifestyle, indulging in expensive homes, cars, and vacations.
Before his stint with Al-Duhail, Olunga showcased his talents playing for various clubs around the world. His journey took him to Japan’s Kashiwa Reysol, Spain’s La Liga side Girona, Guizhou Zhicheng in China, and Djurgårdens IF in the Swedish top division league.
Prior to his international career, he played for Kenyan clubs Gor Mahia, Thika United, Tusker FC in the Kenyan Premier League, and the Liberty Sports Academy, where he honed his skills while still a high school student at Upper Hill School.
