Uganda Cranes winger Abdu Lumala has been unveiled by Egyptian Premier League side Pyramids Football Club, which is coached by former Uganda Cranes head coach Sebastien Desabre.
The 22-year-old completes his switch to Egypt on a free transfer from Swedish side Kalmar FF after a year loan spell at Syrianska.
Throughout his career, Abdu had contributed to 21 goals and 12 assists in 130 games for clubs including Superettan, Allsvenskan, and Svenska Cupen.
Lumala had a good performance and was a top performer with Uganda Cranes in the Africa Nations cup, participating in all the four games up to the round of 16 stage.
He joins Derrick Nsibambi at Smouha Sports Club and midfielder Khalid Aucho at Misr Lel Makkasa Sporting Club among the players playing professional football in Egypt.
Pyramids 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 is the fifth.
