The Cypriot club Apollon Limassol announced the inclusion of Egyptian Amr Warda in the winter transfer period.

The Anorthosis Famagusta club had previously announced its separation from Warda and Croatian Dejan Radonic.

Warda signed a contract with Apollon, his new team, until the end of the current season.

Apollon ranks sixth in the Cypriot League, with 25 points from 15 matches, 12 points behind leaders Apoel Nicosia, but the latter played one more game.

While Apollon bid farewell to the European Conference League competitions from the group stage this season, by occupying third place in a group that included the Dutch AZ Alkmaar, the Ukrainian Dnipro, and Vaduz from Liechtenstein.

Apollon currently includes in its ranks: the Lebanese Basil Jaradi, the Moroccan Amine Khammas, the Mauritanian Al-Hajji Ba, the Spanish Jose Recio, the former Malaga, Granada and Leganes player, the Angolan FA, and the Nigerian Ezequiel Henti.

Apollon won the Cypriot League title 4 times historically, the last of which was last season.

He also won the Cyprus Cup 9 times, the last of which was in 2017, and the Cypriot Super Cup 4 times, the last of which was last season.

Apollon started the current season in the third preliminary round of the Champions League, but bid it farewell to turn into the preliminary round of the European League, which also bid it farewell, and ended up in the European Conference League, which did not succeed in crossing into the knockout round.

For his part, Amr Warda has played in the ranks of Anorthosis Famagusta since his transfer to him in the summer of 2021 from Greek PAOK Thessalonica.

During a season and a half, Warda played 53 matches, during which he scored 12 goals and scored the same, and became the first Egyptian player in history to participate in the European Conference League.

Warda was satisfied with scoring a single goal and making 3 goals this season, accompanied by Anorthosis, in the 12 matches he played.

Apollon is the seventh club Amr Warda has played for since leaving Al-Ahly in 2015.

Warda previously represented Panetilikos, PAOK, Atromoitos, Larissa and Volos clubs in the Greek League. Then he turned to Cyprus at the Anorthosis Gate and followed it to Apollon.

Warda has 30 international matches with the Egyptian national team and was on the list of the 2017 and 2019 African Nations Cup and the 2018 World Cup, but he has not returned to represent the Pharaohs since the South African match in the 16th round of the 2019 African Nations, which followed his famous moral crisis in the national team camp.

Apollon will play its next match against Nea Salamis in the Cypriot League tomorrow, Monday, and then face Paphos next Sunday.
