  • Injury wan kill this guy career sha

  • A very cheering news for Junior Ajayi. Unfortunately he could not represent his team in CAF champions league. Hope he gets back on field soonest.

  • I feel gutted to see Al-Ahly strong forward, Ajayi missed the Caf champs league due to injury. The CAF champs league would have been an opportunity for him to further prove his quality to suitors after an illlustrious performance two seasons ago when his goal scoring form earned him a call to the national team prior to the w/cup.
    Ajayi’s goal scoring form and aggressive style have made him a toast of fans at Ah -Ahly and now he would have to work twice hard to win back the confidence of the fans.
