Ajagun happy to pick up three points against Platanias

28 September 2015, 21:33

Athens - Abdul Ajagun picked up the Most Valuable Player award on the heels of his game - winner for Panathinaikos in their 1 - 0 win over Platanias in the Super League on Sunday.

The attacking midfielder has admitted that the opponents were a tough nut to crack but was delighted that The Greens secured their fourth win in the young season.

''It was a tough game for us but the important thing is the win and the three points we got,'' Abdul Ajagun said in his post-match comments.

''We faced a very good team.  Maybe we didn't press so much in the second half, but still deserve to get the three points.''

Looking ahead to the next fixture against Xanthi, the former Nigeria youth international remained modest when asked to rate the opponents, who are eight positions behind his team in the standings.

''Xanthi is a very good team, it will be difficult game.  I think we will do something good in Xanthi.  And as before, game play will be better.

''These occur in football.  Sometimes you play well, some badly, but what I would say once again today is that we got the three points,'' the Panathinaikos number 14 concluded.
