Antwi started the season with Al Ahly, but was limited to just four league appearances and scored only once against El-Dakhelya, before joining Misr El-Maqassa on loan last January, where he scored 10 league goals in 16 appearances, including a hat-trick against Nasr Lel Taa’deen [the only player alongside Abdallah El-Said to score a league hat-trick this season]. Overall he scored 13 goals in 22 appearances across all competitions this season.

“I will say I’m really excited for my inclusion because in the first round I wasn’t getting enough playing time at Al Ahly,” Antwi told Radio Silver.

“It was only in the second round I had more match actions when I moved to El Maqasa on loan which aided me to be part of the team of the season. I am really happy for that,” he added.

The former Ismaily forward joined Al Ahly in the summer of 2015 from Saudi side Al-Shabab for a fee reported to be around €1m and he is set to join El-Maqassa on another loan spell this summer.
