Nigeria Olympic team international Junior Ajayi has said he is coping with the challenges at mighty Al Ahly in Egypt.
Junior Ajayi, 20, netted his second goal for Ahly on Saturday at El Entag El Harby when he hit target for the opening goal after 48 minutes.
Ahly won 2-0 and they are top of the table on 23 points from nine matches.
“This was my sixth match of the season and my second goal. I have been working hard, adapting fast to the style of game, learning the language and trying to be a professional to the core,” said the former Shooting Stars striker.
The young striker joined Ahly in the summer in a big-money move from Tunisian club CS Sfaxien.
He has signed a five-year contract.
