Junior Ajayi and Al Ahly players have received incentives aplenty following their win over AS Vita Club on Tuesday.
Ajayi, a product of 36 Lion played 74 minutes in the win at Kinshasa.
The Red Eagles, who are the current CAF Champions League holders, went into the clash knowing that nothing less than victory would suffice after a string of poor results in the tournament.
Pitso Mosimane’s men managed to walk out 3-0 victors in Kinshasha thanks to goals from Mohamed Sherif and Mohamed Magdy while Taher Mohamed Taher rounded off the rout.
For their efforts, the Al Ahly board, headed by President Mahmoud ‘Bibo’ El Khatib, decided to grant the players a double win bonus for the victory over Vita.
This was confirmed by the club’s director of football Sayed Abdelhafiz stating that the decision came in recognition of the players’ heroic performance in the game.
Junior Ajayi and his Al Ahly teammates were given a five-day rest by Mosimane and his technical team and will be back in training on 23 March.
Al Ahly are now second in group A with 7 points, three points behind the group leaders, Simba SC, who defeated Al Merrikh SC of Sudan 3-0.
