After stepping down as Uganda Cranes coach, Sebastien Desabre is on the verge of joining Egyptian money bags Pyramids.

Football-256 can reliably report that Desabre will in the coming days put pen to paper for a yet to be disclosed period.

Pyramids was founded 11 years ago as Al Assiouty Sport and are currently without a coach ahead of the 2019/2020 season.

Desabre who was in charge of 21 games as Cranes coach managed only six wins, drew seven and lost eight putting his winning rate at 28.6%.

At his first major tournament, Desabre was able to guide Cranes to the Round of 16 at the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nation finishing second behind Egypt with four points before they were knocked out by Senegal 1-0

He takes over a team that is desperate for success and breaking the monopoly of Al Ahly and Zamalek.

There were reports that Desabre was also in talks of Al Ahly who are also on the verge of parting ways with their Uruguayan coach Martín Lasarte.

Briefly about Pyramids FC

In the summer of 2018, the Chairman of the Saudi Sports Authority Turki Al Sheikh took over the team.

The team’s name was changed from Al Assiouty Sport to Pyramids FC and the money he invested in the club went on to affect the Egyptian Premier League.

On 28 June 2018, former Al Ahly coach, Hossam El Badry was announced as chairman of the club, Ahmed Hassan as spokesman and football team supervisor.

Hady Khashaba was appointed as football director and former Botafogo coach Alberto Valentim as the new manager.
