Former Al Ahly goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy has found himself a new landing point, after joining Pyramids FC. The goalkeeper openly expressed his desire to leave Al Ahly.
He fell down the pecking order at Al Ahly with the arrival of Mohamed El-Shennawy from Petrojet in 2016.
Under the tutelage of coach Hossam El-Badry, Ekramy lost his first choice place from the 2017 season and since then he has played very few games for the Cairo giants.
Swiss coach Rene Weiler kept his faith in El-Shennawy, limiting Sherif Ekramy to just one game, in the Egyptian Cup, against Beni Suef FC.
Consequently the frustrated goalkeeper put in a transfer request in March and the club’s board finally opted to let him go.
The 36-year-old goalkeeper was announced on Tuesday June 2, 2020 as a Pyramids FC player by the club’s caretaker and strategic advisor, Abdelaziz Abdeshafy.
The former Feyenoord, MKE Ankaragucu and El-Gouna goalkeeper won 18 trophies with Al Ahly since joining them on a second spell in 2010, including seven Egyptian Premier League titles and two CAF Champions League trophies.
He is one of three Al Ahly greats to have left the club, after their highly decorated and dependable right-back Ahmed Fathi who also joint Pyramids FC and the club’s most decorated player and former captain Hossam Ashour.
Sherif Ekramy won 24 caps for Egypt from 2006 to 2019 and was named in their preliminary squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
