Super Eagles Star Brown Ideye Wins Greek League Title With Olympiacos

Brown Ideye was on target for Greek giants Olympicos on Sunday in their 5-0 hammering of AEL Kalloni FC, to be crowned champions of the Greek league for the 43rd time.
Goals from David Torrijos, Konstantinos Fortounis, Pajtim Kasami, Omar Elabdellaoui and Ideye fired Marco Silva’s side past Nikos Karageorgiou’s outfit at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium, Piraeus.
Olympiacos (The Legend) finished 27 points ahead of runners-up AEK Athens, with the Super Eagles striker scoring 10 goals in 24 appearances.
It was a first league title for Ideye who has starred for a number of European clubs including Dynamo Kiev in Ukraine and West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League, and he compares the feeling to lifting the 2013 Afcon with Nigeria.
“A big thank you to all who have supported us through this journey. We are champions,” Ideye tweeted.
“Great and emotional day for me. The last time I felt this way was at AFCON 2013. So Excited! 1st league win in my career.

The feat means Ideye and co secure an automatic slot in the group phase of next season’s Uefa Champions League.
