AFC Champions League: Lamouchi on ‘special’ Olunga after Al-Duhail exploits vs Esteghlal FC

The Harambee Stars played a crucial role in Wednesday’s outing against the Iranian side in a group tie

Al-Duhail SC head coach Sabri Lamouchi has discussed how Michael Olunga’s presence has helped them.

The Kenya international registered his first hat-trick in the AFC Champions League this season when he helped the Qatari club earn a 4-3 win over Esteghlal FC of Iran on Tuesday.

“Olunga deserved, of course, to be the man of the match. He’s a special player and his presence has helped us have a lot of attacking options,” Lamouchi said in his post-match conference.
