Pyramids FC sign Ghanaian striker Antwi as part of squad overhaul
Published in Ahram Online on 30 - 07 - 2019

Egyptian side Pyramids FC signed on Tuesday Ghanaian striker John Antwi from Maqassa for their sixth summer acquisition.
The rising power in Egyptian football confirmed the news on their official Twitter account without giving further details over the amount or the length of the contract.
Antwi, who will turn 27 in August, made a big impression with Maqassa in the close season, scoring 11 goals in 28 league games.
The former Ahly and Ismaily striker became the highest-scoring foreigner in the history of the Egyptian Premier League last November, breaking the record of his compatriot Ernest Papa Arko who scored 61 goals between 2004 and 2016.
Antwi, who has netted 37 goals in 72 league games since joining Maqassa in January 2017, took his tally to 68 goals by the end of the 2018/2019 season.
The Ghanaian striker has become Pyramids' sixth signing after striker Ahmed Ali (Arab Contractors), forward Islam Eissa (Masry), midfielders Tarek Taha (Ismaily) and Mahmoud Hamada (El-Entag El-Harby) and defender Mohamed Atwa (free agent) as part of a major overhaul at the club.
Pyramids, formerly known as Assiouty Sport, were bought by former Saudi Sports Minister Turki Al-Sheikh last summer and the team flexed their muscles in the transfer market, making some mega signings after landing the likes of Brazilian flamboyant winger Keno, Syrian striker and 2017 Asian player of the year Omar Kharbin and Peruvian playmaker Cristian Benavente.
However, Al-Sheikh announced in May that he would no longer maintain control of the club, selling his entire stake to Emirati businessman Salem Al-Shamsi.
Keno and Kharbin have already left with more expected to follow suit, giving an indication that that Al-Shamsi is unlikely to maintain the spending spree of his predecessor.
French coach Sebastien Desabre, who was appointed early in July after leading Uganda to the Africa Cup of Nations round of 16, is seeking to rebuild Pyramids' squad before the start of the season.
Pyramids finished third last season behind Ahly and Zamalek and will participate to the Confederation Cup, Africa's secondary club competition, for the first time of their history.
