Electric coach Berhanu Bayu likely to get dumped


Coach Berhanu Bayu is on the brink of becoming the first coach to be sacked in the current Ethiopian Premier League season. With current national team coach Ashenafi Bekele the hottest favorite three candidates are said to have been interviewed.
Just seven fixtures in to the season and millions of Birr in players transfer relegation struggling Ethio-Electric is to boot out Berhanu Bayu who led the team to the City Cup trophy last season. Surviving relegation for the past three successive seasons much expected to get sacked Berhanu somehow managed to carry on for the new season. Though his role in the winter players’ transfer saga considered minimal for travelling to America and Morocco, he is now accused of failing to achieve results with the current squad thus insiders suggest Dedebit’s match over the week end is likely his last chance to boss the team.
Infamous for surviving relegation at the final matches of the past three successive seasons, Electric is currently 14th in the league table collecting five points from five matches thus many including supporters worried about the coming days. Insiders suggested long in assistant position under different head coaches Ermias is also to be sacked along with Berhanu Bayu.
According to critics all three candidates including under EFF contract Ashenafi Bekele had delivered little or none in their more than three decades of service as club coaches. Wondering around many clubs Ashenafi’s biggest achievement is that of leading Adama in to promotion then to third place while Tilahun Mengesha notorious for getting sacked in mid-season. Wondemagne Kebede had led Electric to championship title in the early nineties but since then he delivered nothing despite bossing around different clubs. “Whoever appointed is not accountable for whatever failure comes at the end of the season. The outgoing coach would be blamed for the squad selection therefore a proven hand needs to be employed” a former electric coach suggested.
