Ashenafi back to Adama, Girma gets new contract


Helping Wolayta Dicha survive in the Ethiopian Premier League, Coach Ashenafi Bekele returned to Adama Town for his second spell while back to the Premier League Hadiya-Hossana Coach Girma Tadesse signed a two year new contract.
This is Ashenafi Bekele’s second spell to Adama Town. The former Ethiopia NegedBank, Mekelakeya, Ethio-Electric and national team Coach Ashenafi Bekele took the appointment ahead of Welwalo-Adigrat Coach Yohannes Sahle and former Mugher Cement Girma Habteyohannes. Though he resigned from the national team after nasty results then damped Electric in to relegation a year before, helping Wolayta to survive in the upper tier despite joining the side in mid season, helped him recover his name.
A war horse that saw number of highs and downs, Ashenafi was handed a one year contract that goes along with an unconfirmed 100 Thousand Birr monthly salary. “I am sure Adama could be back in to title contention under Ashenafi,” a former Adama player Mesfin Alemu stated.
In the meantime new comers Hadiya Hossana Coach Girma Tadesse will stay in the hot seat for the coming two seasons. An expert by his own right after helping three sides in to promotion: twice with Hossana and Debub Police, Girma is renowned for selecting talents as well team building. “We are proud to announce Girma’s stay with the team and he has the green light to start team building as of tomorrow” Club manager
Melaku Madoro told reporters. “Not only a better squad but we are working hard to come-up with a better play ground for the new season,” Melaku added.
