BY: Eyalama In Sports On

Emmanuel Arnold Okwi has signed a two-year deal with Egypt Premier League outfit Ittihad Alexandria.

Ittihad Alexandria beat a wide range of clubs to the signature of the former Sports Club Villa talisman.

The move was brokered by FIFA agent Geoffrey Kayemba, who was also the main link chain in the transfer of Khalid Aucho.

Okwi had been sought by clubs in Saudia Arabia, Morocco, Tunisia, his immediate past club Simba as well as Premier Soccer League (PSL) club Kaizer Chiefs.

Okwi scored two goals for Uganda Cranes against DR Congo and Zimbabwe at the 2019 AFCON final in Egypt.

He has previously played at SC Villa, Simba, Etoile du Sahel, Young Africans and Sonderjyske in Denmark.

After Aucho joined Misr Mikassa, he was followed by Abdu Lumala at Pyramids.

Pyramids, for starters, is also home to former Uganda Cranes head coach Sebastien Desabre.
