Brown Ideye

Brown Ideye was on parade for Olympiacos on Sunday as they defeated AEL Kalloni FC 5-0 to emerge champions of the Greek league for the 43rd time ever.

Goals from David Torrijos, Konstantinos Fortounis, Pajtim Kasami, Omar Elabdellaoui and Ideye were all Marco Silva’s men needed to get past Nikos Karageorgiou’s outfit at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium, Piraeus.

The Legend finished 27 points ahead of runners-up AEK Athens, with the Nigeria scoring 10 goals in 24 appearances.

“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.
