Liberec signs Olatunji on permanent deal

Slovan Liberec has completed a permanent deal for Nigerian striker Victor Olatunji.

It was announced on the club’s official website.

The three-time Czech First League champions used their option to sign the outstanding player, who had been on loan from Cyprus’s Larnaca since January.

Olatunji’s outstanding performances on loan have persuaded the club’s management to sign him permanently.

The 23-year-old striker, who stands at an imposing 193 cm, made an immediate impression upon his debut in Liberec.

In his competitive debut against Pardubice, he demonstrated his ability by finding the back of the net.

His contributions become more prominent as the engagement developed. He made major contributions in games against Slavia, Zln, Hradec Králové, and eské Budjovice, helping Slovan dominate the playoffs.

Olatunji scored eight goals and assisted once in his 18 league outings for the blue and white.

On the pitch, he shown his versatility and discipline, amassing only one yellow card while maintaining a solid 56.9% dribbling success rate and over 20% shooting success rate.

In addition, he made an impact in the MOL Cup, scoring in a penalty shootout against Sparta.

Olatunji previously played for Slovak Inter Bratislava, Podbrezová, Austrian SV Mattersburg, and Cypriot clubs Alki Oroklini and Larnaca.
