Pyramids Football Club have beaten giants Al Ahly SC to the signature of former Uganda Cranes head coach Sebastien Desabre on a two-year contract.
This comes after the Frenchman’s contract with Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) as the national team head coach was terminated after a 1-0 defeat to Senegal at the Afcon last 16 round.
There has been a lookout for a replacement manager at Al Ahly since the Caf Champions League disappointment but it looks as though the Red Devils have missed out on the Frenchman.

Pyramids Football Club is an Egyptian football club based in Cairo, Egypt. The club currently plays in the Egyptian Premier League, the highest league in the Egyptian football league system.
It was founded as Al Assiouty Sport in 2008 but in the summer of 2018, the Chairman of the Saudi Sports Authority Turki Al Sheikh took over the team and the team’s name was changed from Al Assiouty Sport to Pyramids FC.
In their brief history as a club, Pyramids have so far had four managers and Desabre will be the fifth.
This will become the Frenchman’s second job in Egypt after a short spell with Ismaily in 2017, where he took charge of the club in 18 games.
Desabre has acquired experience in African football after coaching clubs like ASEC Mimosas in Ivory Coast, CS Garoua in Cameroon and ES Tunis in Tunisia, JS Saoura in Algeria and Wydad Athletic Club in Morocco.
