STARS ABROAD: Metrics show why Eric 'Marcelo' Ouma could follow Joseph Okumu to a top European league
Ouma has been linked with moves to several European clubs, including Atalanta, Wolfsburd, Crystal Palace and an unnamed club in France.
It was a game AIK needed to win to stay afloat in their battle for survival in what has been a very underwhelming season for the 2018 league champions.
AIK opened the scoring in the 25th minute through Ioannis Pitas, who received a pass from Alexander Milošević who had held the ball up well, before setting up the forward who slotted the ball into the top right corner.

The Kenyan women are putting on a brave face ahead of the two-legged tie with the Indomitable Lionesses in September.
The hosts doubled their lead in the 32nd minute when Ouma received the ball on the left flank, before making a well-executed early floated cross to right winger Rui Modesto, who volleyed into the back of the net.
Pitas would then seal the match in the second half when he converted a penalty he won in the 59th minute to give the hosts all three points, and their first win in four league matches.
