Brazilian manager Alberto Valentim named Pyramids FC head coach
Brazilian manager Alberto Valentim has been appointed as head coach of Egyptian Premier League side Pyramids FC, the club announced on Thursday.
The Al Assiouty Sport club was recently acquired by chairman of Saudi Sports Authority Turki Al Sheikh and renamed to Pyramids FC. Since the acquisition deal, the club announced the signing of Mohamed Farouk from Arab Contractors, and Brazilian duo Lucas Ribamar, Marcos da Silva França ‘Keno’ and Syria international defender Omar Midani.
In a press conference on Thursday, the club revealed that former Botafogo manager Alberto Valentim will take over at the club and will be assisted by a Brazilian team. Hady Khashaba was appointed as director of football and Egypt legend Ahmed Hassan will become the club’s spokesperson.
Valentim played for Italian sides Udinese and Siena in Serie A. He had a couple of spells as assistant coach for Atlético Paranaense and Palmerias before taking charge at Botafogo. The 43-year-old spent only four months at the helm of the Brazilian side as he took over in February.
Assiouty finished the 2017/18 season in the 9th place and defeated Al Ahly in the quarter-final of the Egypt Cup before losing to Smouha on penalties in the semi-final.
