Former Uganda Cranes coach Sebastien Desabre has promised to win titles for his new Egyptian club.
The Frenchman – nicknamed the Florist – has been unveiled at Pyramids FC on Monday. This comes few days after terminating his contract with FUFA.
He replaces Ramon Diaz who led the side to CAF Confederations Cup. The club, in the past, has had foreign coaches that include Alberto Valentin (Brazil) and Ricardo La Volpe (Argentina) among others.
“When I was in charge of Ismaily, my target was to win the Egyptian Premier League title. It is important that I reach the same goal with the Pyramids,” said Desabre as quoted by ahram online news.
“I will do my best to win the league title and the African Confederations Cup title. The work environment in Egypt is good.”

Desabre guided Uganda to 2019 Africa Cup of Nations before helping the side reach knockout for the first time in 41 years.
“I am proud of what I have achieved with Uganda in the Africa Cup of Nations but now is the time to speak about this (new) issue.”
It remains to be known if Desabre will succeed in Egyptian league which is greatly dominated by Al Ahly and partly Zamalek.
Pyramids FC got its name in the summer of 2018 after it was acquired by Al Sheikh. The club was formed in 2008 as Al Assiouty Sport before earning promotion to top flight for the first time in 2014.
