Al Ahly’s striker Junior Ajayi returned to his short stint with Esperance Sportive de Tunis before joining Club Sportif Sfaxien.
“I remember first caught the club’s attention during a warm-up game with Nigeria’s Olympic selection against Tunisia.
Immediately after the game, the Esperance officials approached me, and we discussed for me to sign contract. Everything was in order.
Unfortunately, my first training session did not go well. The next day, the President of Espérance informed me that, contract was terminated. I informed those around me. I was in tears. I flew back to Nigeria. When I arrived, I received a call from CS Sfaxien and returned the same day to Tunisia. I signed and played my first game against ES Tunis. I scored and made them lose the title. I took my revenge. It was a great feeling.” Ajayi narrated.
The Al Ahly goal poacher could have made a name for himself at Esperance but impatience caused Esperance that opportunity.
The player initially joined Esperance in 2015 but left just a day after only to return in CSFaxsien colours and cause Espérance the 2015 domestic title.
Since after the Esperance incident, Ajayi has scored 45 goals in 149 games for CS Sfaxien and Al Ahly of Cairo.
