Three star foreigners to grace EPL second round


Ethiopian Premier League football fans are expected to encounter at least three big name foreign footballers when the second round fixtures kick-off today.
Former champions Ethiopia Bunna will unveil a new striker from Uganda named Boban Zirintusa. The 26 year-old Ugandan journeyman has graced eight clubs before reaching AbaJifar scoring 80 goals in 219 appearances. He also played for Uganda at all levels and a total of 21 internationals.
Strongly criticized for lack of a goal hunting front man Ethiopia Bunna’s French boss Didier Gomes appears to have found one that may dust off frustrations from The Brown Shirt’s faithful.
Jimma Aba Jifar, which is already experiencing a great year, also signed Ghanaian attacking midfielder Aaron Amoha. The 24 year old former Ashanti Gold and Ghana U-17 and U-20 squad member is expected to pair with Nigerian goal machine Okikiola Afolabi to make a formidable strike force capable of bringing Aba Jifar’s dream title quest. Amoha is the fourth foreign player to join the side along with Okikiola, Adama Sisoco and Daniel Ojey.
Gondor based Fasil’s second round new signee is Ugandan international Hamis Diego Kizza.  He has 127 goals in 198 appearances, was a CECAFA Cup winner and the 2011 Ugandan player of the year. The 27 year old Kizza finished top scorer twice with Tanzanian side Young Africa. Five goals in Ugandan U-23 and 11 goals in 26 appearances for the senior side, Kizza appears to be a big fish that could bring enormous change in the club’s performance.
