Ajayi is best foreign player in Egypt
Nigeria’s Junior Ajayi who just got invitation to the Super Eagles, has been named the best foreign player in the Egypt League.
Al Ahly said on its official website that the Nigerian forward was given the award during the annual Ahram awards held on Friday evening in Cairo.
His Al Ahly teammate Ahmed Fathi was also given the player of the year award.
Ajayi has played 44 matches and scored 16 goals since he joined Al Ahly from CS Faxien of Tunisia in 2016.
The 22 year old is in Gernot Rohr’s 28-man squad list that will play in the Super Eagles’ friendly games against Poland and Serbia later this month.
Ajayi was selected by Nigeria for the 18-man squad for the 2016 Summer Olympics after helping the team to qualify to Rio with his decisive goals.
