Egyptian giants Al-Ahly are beefing up their squad ahead of the inaugural African Football League (AFL)
The club on Tuesday announced the signing of former Dortmund forward Antony Modeste on a one year contract at an undisclosed fee.
The 35-year-old Frenchman is a big addition to Al-Ahly considering that he has featured in the three major European leagues, France, England and Germany.
Modeste was lavishly unveiled by Al-Ahly on their facebook page drawing wide interest from their passionate fans.
He began his footballing career at French Ligue one side Nice before being loaned out to Angers where he scored an impressive 20 goals.
That performance saw him cross over to Bordeaux after signing a four year contract. After two years at the French club, he was loaned out to Blackburn Rovers in the English Premier League.
In 2012, he returned to France joining Bastia after Rovers were relegated and had huge success at the club as he scored 15 goals emerging the team’s best player of the season.
One year later, he joined 1899 Hoffenheim after signing a three year contract and left after scoring 23 goals in 62 matches. When his time at Hoffenheim came to an end, he joined FC Koln on a four-year deal and also had quite a successful time.
After several loan moves, he returned to Germany last year and signed one-year contract with Borussia Dortmund and left after his time was over.
He is expected to be a great addition to Al-Ahly ahead of the inaugural African Football League (AFL) tournament.
