“We need big players to step up in the big matches and that is what happened today from Mohamed El Shenawy. He always delivers when the team needs him,” Mosimane told the club website.
“Ajayi is one of the key players in the team. He just returned from an injury, but he managed to score our two goals in the match.
“We pushed forward to score and I decided to add more strikers. Also, I was aware of the players who were booked when I made the substitutions.”
Al Ahly remain second on the Premier League table, five points behind leaders Zamalek who have played two matches more than them.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
