Ajayi, who scored in the 19th and 48th minutes as Ahly raced to a 3-0 lead, was elated the players gladdened the hearts of supporters, before clarifying his own future at the club.

“Both teams performed really well. It was a tough game but we were able to lift the trophy at the end and I want to congratulate Al Ahly and its fans for the trophy,” Ajayi told OnSport TV channel [via Kingfut].

“Of course it doesn’t matter who plays because the win is for everyone. I got the opportunity and gave my all on the pitch.

“I never said I was leaving Al Ahly, I have a contract and I’m staying. Leaving Al Ahly won’t be my decision.”
