Olunga's former team relegated in China as SIPG wins maiden title

08 Nov 2018, 16:55

Michael Olunga’s former club Guizhou Zhicheng has been relegated from the Chinese Super League(CSL).

Zhicheng is rock bottom of the 16-team league with 21 points, 12 adrift from safety with only a game remaining to the conclusion of the season.

Olunga who now plays in the J1 League with Kashiwa Raysol joined the Chinese side in 2017 where he failed to impress and was later loaned out to Girona for a season where he wrote his name in the history books on his debut season, becoming the first Girona player to ever score a hat-trick in La Liga.


SIPG triumph


Shanghai SIPG meanwhile are the new champions of the CSL after edging out Beijing Renhe 2-1 on Wednesday 7th November at the Shanghai stadium.


Goals from Odil Akhmedov and Wu Lei proved enough as SIPG won their maiden title ending Guangzhou Evergrande’s seven-year dominance.


SIPG is home to former Porto and Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk and former Chelsea playmaker Oscar. Viktor Perreira, who succeeded Andre Villas-Boas as manager of the newly crowned champions revealed his admiration for his team for ending Evergrande’s grip on the title for the last seven years.


“We have broken Evergrande’s monopoly for the last seven years. That was an amazing challenge and we have done it.” He said.
