Flying Eagles attacking hotshot Tolulope Ojo has put pen to paper with Egyptian Premier League title chasing side, Pyramids Football Club on a two-and-a-half (2½) years deal.
The 19 year-old Ojo who powered the Flying Eagles of Nigeria to win the nation’s first ever U-20 WAFU Cup last year, scoring two (2) goals in the final, signed on the dotted lines with the Cairo based team on the winter transfer deadline, Tuesday 31st, January, 2023.
The Ekiti born attacker also know as Tolulopez or OT9 was also awarded the Man of Match Award of that final and joins the Egyptian professional football club from Phoenix ASC of Ado Ekiti.
Pyramids FC are currently placed 2nd on the Egyptian Premier League table – only behind giant Al Ahly, with 31 points after 16 games. They are hoping the addition of Ojo dubbed the ‘Black Brazilian’ can add to their rich vein of form (3 wins and 2 draws in the last 5 league games) and propel them towards a historic title after also finishing as runners up in 2021/22.
Tolulope Ojo is expected to join the Flying Eagles as they prepare to conquer Africa at the 2023 CAF U-20 Africa Cup of Nations holding in Egypt between 19 February – 11 March
