Nigerian striker, Brown Ideye is thrilled to have won his first ever league title with Olympiakos of Greece on Sunday.
The 27 year old Nigerian forward who was shipped out from West Brom to the Athens-based club last summer after he struggled to make an impression in the EPL was on target for Olympiakos as they claimed their 43rd Greek championship title with a 5-0 win over AEL Kalloni FC at Karaiskakis Stadium on Sunday.
Ideye put the icing on the cake when he scored his side's fifth of the encounter, his 10th league goal of the season in 24 league appearances for the club.
The former Dynamo Kiev star revealed that his title triumph with Olympiakos brought back good memories of Nigeria's success at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
Ideye tweeted: "A big thank you to all who have supported us through this journey. We are champions.
"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 Olympiakos will play in next season's UEFA Champions League.
