Egyptian champions Al Ahly have confirmed Junior Ajayi will spend up to three months on the sidelines to treat an ankle injury.
The club’s director of football, Sayed Abdel Hafeez gave an update on the 24-year-old’s injury after he missed the Red Devils’ flying start to the 2020-21 Egyptian Premier League season.
Ajayi last played for Pitso Mosimane’s side in their CAF Champions League final triumph over Zamalek on November 27 where he saw 67 minutes of action before his substitution.
Ajayi joined Al Ahly from Tunisian top-flight club CS Sfaxien in 2016 and he was handed a three-year contract extension in February 2016.
The former 3SC striker has thrived in Egypt since his arrival four years ago, winning four Premier League titles, two Egyptian Cups, two Egyptian Super Cups and a Caf Champions League trophy.
