Former Borussia Dortmund striker Anthony Modeste has officially departed African champions Al Ahly.

This comes after the 36-year-old’s contract with the Egyptian football powerhouse expired at the end of last month.

“Al Ahly club thanked the French Anthony Modeste, the first football team player, after his contract expired at the end of this month,” a club statement read.

“It stressed its full appreciation for Modeste’s commitment, effort and high spirit with his teammates throughout his presence, which contributed to winning three championships.

“Modeste was one of the players who always adhered to the club’s rules and the instructions of the technical management

“He sought to cooperate with his teammates in all the matches he participated in to achieve the team’s interest. The club wished Modeste success in his next journey.”

The former 1899 Hoffenheim and Blackburn Rovers player scored six goals and provided four assists in 31 games for Al Ahly.

He won the CAF Champions League title, the Egypt Cup, the Egypt Super Cup and Club World Cup bronze medal with the team.
