Fresh Super Eagles call-up Junior Ajayi said that he is delighted to have won the 40th Egyptian championship with Al Ahly just days after he was named the best foreign player in that country.
“I am so excited to win my second league title with Al Ahly. It was a rigorous season but we thank Allah we are now the champions again after winning it last season, making it the 40th league title for my club,” he told SCORENigeria
“I am pleased because I scored vital goals In the league and my consistency earned me a Super Eagles call-up (for World Cup warm-ups vs Poland and Serbia later this month).
“The other blessing for me was that after I was invited by the Eagles for the first time, I was also picked as the beat foreign player in the league.”
Al Ahly are runaway champions even with six rounds of matches till the end of the season.
