Nigeria striker Brown Ideye won his first-ever league title in Europe with Olympiacos is style after a 3-0 win over Veria FC on Sunday.
Olympiacos set the pace with 67 points from 24 games to win their 43rd title with six games to spare to record the earliest time a Greek league crown has been won.
They defeated Veria 3-0 to achieve a record 43rd title; a feat master-minded by manager Marco Silva, who has overseen 22 wins, one draw and one defeat from his team’s 24 league games, also in his debut season like the Nigerian.
David Fuster netted a brace in a game the home side dominated while Alan Pulido sealed the win with a late finish to take them 21 points clear of second-placed AEK Athens, who only have seven games left to play and have a weaker head-to-head record.
With this title, Olympiacos have now won the title for six straight seasons and an astonishing 18 times from the last 20 campaigns.
Ideye was shipped out by premier league side West Brom after he failed to impress but has consistently produced the goods for his Greek side which may just be enough to earn him a recall to the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
The former Ocean Boys forward was delighted with the feat and shared his joy on twitter
So excited to be part of history today!!fastest championship winners in Greek football history. God is great! pic.twitter.com/Tu5gLaumIS— Brown Ideye (MON) (@OfficialIdeye) February 28, 2016
