The 27-year-old spent the first seven years of his professional career with the Boss and was part of three Arabian Gulf League title-winning sides.
Juma also won one President’s Cup, one Arabian Gulf Cup and one Arabian Gulf Super Cup title with Al Ain, but has made more league appearances (22) in his debut season with the Pride of Abu Dhabi than in any of his previous seven in the Garden City.
Jazira ended a barren spell without lifting a piece of silverware at Zayed Sports City on Sunday in thrilling fashion. Henk ten Cate’s men kept their nerve from 12 yards even after star striker Ali Mabkhout had seen his opening penalty of the shootout saved by Khalid Essa.
Juma admitted that winning the title was special, especially against his former side.
“I was at Al Ain and this was a final against Al Ain. Inside my heart I wanted to do my best against Al Ain and win the title,” said the centre-back, who also admitted he was able to supply his colleagues with information about their opponents having previously played with them.
“It was a challenge for me, a special challenge. I looked forward to playing against Al Ain after we beat Al Ahli (3-2 in the semi-final). It was more special for me than the other players. I knew their strong and weak points so I told my team-mates during the match.”
