No show for 'sacrificed' Olunga as Guizhou sneak with victory
An ostracized Michael Olunga missed from Guizhou Zhicheng match-day squad as the Chinese Super League side ran out 4-3 winners against Hebei China in a clash played on Saturday 23 July at the Guiyang Olympic stadium.
Nikica Jelavic, Festus Baise Min Julin and Chang Feiya scored for Guizhou as a brace from Ezekiel Lavezzi saw the visitors just short of sealing a comeback.
Olunga who was demoted to Guizhou's reserves a week ago was nowhere in the teamsheet with Spanish new-signing pair of Robert Castro and midfielder Mario Suarez both getting starting nods.
The Chinese foreign quota rule stipulates that only three players are named in the match day squad, a rule that has forced the CSL newcomers to hard decisions with Olunga and Egyptian Ali Ghazal being sacrificed.
The Kenyan international is reportedly eyeing a move away from the club, he joined at start of the year from Sweden.
