Official : Three-time Czech champions Slovan Liberec loan in Victor OlatunjiPublished: January 19, 2023
Through a press release published on their official website, Cypriot First Division club AEK Larnaca have announced that Nigerian center forward Victor Olatunji has joined three-time Czech champions FC Slovan Liberec.
Slovan Liberec have loaned in the 23-year-old for the remainder of the 2022-2023 season.
This season, Olatunji played in eleven matches for AEK Larnaca in European competitions including Champions League qualifying rounds, Europa League qualifiers and group stage of the Europa League.
On his curriculum vitae, he lists Inter Bratislava, Podbrezova, SV Mattersburg and Alki Oroklini among his previous clubs.
Speaking on the signing of Olatunjii, manager Luboš Kozel said to Slovan Liberec's official webpage : "Typologically, this is a striker who is tall, strong in the air and in tackles. We do not have such a player in the team.
"Maybe Michael Rabušic is slightly similar to him. We needed a striker after the departure of Mick van Buren and when Max Talovjerov left us, we also needed a player applicable to standard situations.
"He is a young player, so very promising for his age. We were interested in Victor already in the summer, but Larnaca did not let him go because they were playing in the Europa League group.
"When the opportunity arose to get him in this transfer window, we reached for him."
Olatunjji could make his debut for Slovan Liberec in Thursday's TipSport Malta Cup clash against Zlin.
