Nigerian striker Junior Ajayi expressed his happiness after scoring against Zamalek and spoke about his future with the Red Devils. 

The 21-year-old scored Al Ahly’s second goal as the Red Devils defeated the White Knights 2-0 in the last fixture of the Egyptian Premier League last week. He scored eight goals and provided four assists in 22 league appearances with the Red Castle this season.

“Winning the derby against Zamalek gave Ahly a great boost before the Arab Club Championship. The result against Zamalek was a great way to end the league,” Ajayi said.

Al Ahly who had secured the league title four weeks before it ended managed to maintain their unbeaten run during the campaign after their victory over Zamalek.

“My goal against Zamalek is one of my most important goals,” he added, saying it makes up for the goal he wasted against Zamalek in the Super Cup in February when the White Castle beat Al Ahly on penalties to win the title.

“It was a chance I will never forget. I’ve been waiting to score against Zamalek since then,” he added.

Ajayi, who joined the Red Castle from Tunisian side CS Sfaxien in 2016, believes Al Ahly will be his gateway to success.

“I’m confident Al Ahly is my gateway to any success, whether it’s on a personal level or with the national team,” said Ajayi who was part of Nigeria’s squad for the 2016 Olympic Games but was never called up to the senior team.

“I’m now fully focused on my performance with Al Ahly so that I may achieve more success,” Ajayi added.

In addition to being a football/soccer and basketball enthusiast, I am currently pursuing a combined BS/MD degree at VCU. I also currently work as a Pharmacy Technician in my spare time.
