Ghanaian striker was thrilled after winning his maiden major trophy, describing the league title win with Al Ahly as a “big history”.

Al Ahly beat Ismaily 2-1 on Friday to secure the Egyptian Premiere League title for an unprecedented 38th time. The Ghanaian striker was part of the squad and played the full 90 minutes.

Antwi expressed his happiness for winning the league title and spoke about the significance of the triumph.

“It is such a great feeling and don’t know how to describe it, being my first major trophy in my career, it is a big history,” Antwi told

Despite Al Ahly seemingly losing the steam toward the end of the league, especially after losing 3-2 to Al Masry, the 23-year-old was confident of his team’s abilities to claim the title.

“Yes I knew we were going to win the league because we have a very good and strong team,” he added.
