Ethiopia Bunna cuts three; Woldya short handed


Ethiopia Bunna parted ways with three of its winter break signees while Woldya is worried about the six players who failed to report back to the club.
The impact of the hard working French head coach Didier Gomes’s arrival has shown for Ethiopia Bunna as they have won two in a row. A 2-0 away victory over Diredawa and a hard fought 3-2 home victory over Fasil. Gomes has signed two foreign strikers Boban Ziruntusa from Uganda and Baptiste Faye from Senegal who are waiting until the second round kick-off.
Though joining Ethiopia Bunna after a successful trial period with former coach Dragan Popadic, Bereket Yishak has just a single goal in more than eight starts, former Electric striker Manaye Fantu has yet to score and the former Welwalo- Adigrat famous winger Abduselam Nuru is taking time to get adjusted to the big leagues, Gomes let the three players go their way after a mutual concession. According to sources the French wizard is said to be in negotiations with two more foreign players that could join the team for the second round.
In another development after two weeks of interruption Woldya is back to action calling all players back to camp in Woldya. All the players except for six have already started practice getting ready for the coming busy schedule. Fitsum G/Mariam, Menyahel Teshome, Amare Bekele, Tadele Mihiret, Yared Berhanu and Edom Kodzo are no shows.
According to the club’s manager the players are expected to join the squad soon because things are calm and home supporters are jubilant to see them back in action. “We are in need of a strong squad for the busy schedule and everybody wants to see Woldya back on track. Failure to join the team in time will have serious consequences,” club manager Germew remarked.
