Egyptian side Pyramids announced on Thursday that Brazilian goalkeeper Dida will become a member of the club's technical staff managed by Ricardo La Volpe.

"Pyramids have completed the signing of former Brazilian keeper Dida to provide more technical training for the club's keepers," read a statement on the club's official website on Thursday.

"Dida will improve the performance of the club's keepers," the statement continued.

The former AC Milan Keeper was a member of Brazil's golden generation that won the World Cup in 2002 and the Confederation Cup in 1997 and 2005.

He won the Champions League twice with Serie A side AC Milan in 2003 and 2007.

Formerly known as Assiouty Sport, Pyramids made some record signings in the summer after being taken over by Saudi investor Turki Al-Sheikh, who is the head of Saudi Arabia's General Sports Authority (GSA).

Pyramids are currently second in the league table with ten points behind Ahly, who lead the table by virtue of a better goal difference.
