Ex-Arsenal star Alex Song wins Djibouti Premier League title
33-year-old Alexander Song has helped the Djiboutian side defend the title they won last season after going 10 points clear at the top. Former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder Alex Song has won the Djibouti Premier League title for a second consecutive season with AS Arta/Solar7 on Saturday.
The former Cameroon international achieved the feat after his side hammered Arhiba 12-1 in a top-flight fixture. The win saw Arta reach an unassailable 45 points from 18 matches.
Song joined the Djiboutian club in November 2020 as a free agent after he was released by Swiss Super League club Sion in March 2020.
“Thanks, guys we did a great job,” Song wrote in his post which was accompanied by a photo of him holding the winners’ trophy and donning a medal.
On January 6, 2015, Song announced his international retirement, aged 27 and earning 49 caps, citing his wish to focus on rebuilding his domestic career with West Ham United.
