CAIRO: Midfielder Mohamed Barakat said that by beating Ismaili to win the Egyptian Premier League title, Ahly have maintained their status as the country s best club.

The Red Devils secured the title after beating Ismaili 1-0 in the league decider played on Sunday in Alexandria.

Some media reports referred to us as an ageing team, and now I want to congratulate my ageing team for winning a fifth consecutive title, Barakat said jokingly.

It s the first time we feel such joy for winning a league. This season was more difficult than any of the previous ones I won with Ahly.

Ahmed Hassan said that winning this league title is the most important trophy he ever achieved.

The league is the first local competition I win in Egypt, the veteran midfielder said after the game.

I ve always wished to win the Egyptian League, and I m delighted I managed to do that with Ahly.

Hassan, who was crowned as African champion three times with Egypt, had a glorious career in Turkey and Belgium before joining Ahly last summer.
