After a spell of over ten years abroad where he became one of the top strikers in Egyptian club football, Ghana’s John Antwi is returning home to continue his career after Dreams FC announced the acquisition of Antwi over the weekend. The 31-year-old returns to the club that developed him from his most recent stop in the Arab World, a brief spell with Jordanian club Al-Faisaly. Dreams will hope that Antwi can return to top form as they prepare for the first leg of their 2023-24 CAF Confederation Cup first round matchup against Guinea’s Milo FC on August 19.
Antwi has struggled to find the net over the last three seasons but is the Egyptian Premier League’s all-time leading goal scorer with 77 goals in 193 appearances. The marksman with two caps for the Ghana national team found glory with Ismaily SC and Masr Lel Makkasa while also spending time with top Cairo clubs Al Ahly SC as well as Pyramids FC and El Gaish. Antwi was the league’s top scorer with Ismaily during the 2013-14 Premier League season and also was the top scorer at two editions of the Egypt Cup.
The goals have not been flowing as freely over the past few seasons. Antwi only managed two goals with Pyramids during the 2020-21 season before moving on loan to El Gaish where he only found the net once in an Egypt Cup match. His latest move to Jordan’s Al-Faisaly saw him score two goals as the club won the Jordan Shield Cup during a four-month spell.
