Anthony Modeste Joins Al-Ahly After Brief Stint with Borussia Dortmund

Former Borussia Dortmund striker, Anthony Modeste, has made a surprising move to Egyptian and African champions Al-Ahly, just one year after his signing with the German club. Modeste was initially brought to Dortmund with high expectations, seen as a potential replacement for the prolific Erling Haaland.

The French forward’s journey to Dortmund began when he was signed to fill in for Sebastien Haller, who had been diagnosed with a malignant testicular tumour. Haller’s arrival at Dortmund was itself a replacement for Erling Haaland, who had moved on to become a goal-scoring sensation at Manchester City.

However, Modeste’s time with Borussia Dortmund did not live up to expectations. In the 2022-2023 Bundesliga season, the 35-year-old striker managed to score only two goals in 19 appearances. One of those goals came in a dramatic last-minute equaliser that secured a 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich in October.

Al-Ahly, the reigning champions of Egypt and Africa, have now signed Anthony Modeste to a one-year contract, with the possibility of an extension “according to the terms that were agreed,” as stated by the club on its official website.

Modeste could make his debut for Al-Ahly as early as next Friday when the team faces Algerian side USM Alger in the African Super Cup, which will be held in Saudi Arabia. Following that, the Egyptian League is set to kick off just three days later.

This unexpected move has created significant intrigue in the footballing world, with fans and pundits eager to see how Modeste’s talents will contribute to Al-Ahly’s continued success and whether his time with the Egyptian champions will be more fruitful than his brief stint in Germany.
