Wubetu in a signing spree behind the curtain


Though not yet officially unveiled as Saint George Coach, Wubetu Abate is already busy in the transfer market handpicking players suitable for his ball possession style of play. Wubetu took in to his wing three upcoming young talents while handing seven players a new two year contract extension.
Wubetu might be the right answer to Saint George supporters that were complaining for years about the team’s lack of fluid football. A title winner who is committed to build a results oriented, ball playing side. Former Dedebit Fc Yabsera Tesfaye and Abel Endale are the new boys that joined the Horsemen in a two year contract. Coming up through the rank to play a major role in Dedebit for the last two seasons, the two players are much expected to orchestrate the Horsemen’s midfield.
The other guy who penned a new contract is former Welwalo central defender Desta Demu. One of the best emerging talents last season, Desta could be the right answer to inconsistent Salhadin Bargecho. The partnership between Walia’s skipper Aschalew Tamene and Desta Demu is expected to benefit even the national side. Desta is also a proven full back with high inclination of going forward therefore an ideal choice for Wubetu’s possession football.
The most famous goalkeeper stranded in the reserve bench for the last two seasons Lealem Berhanu, defenders: injury prone Salhadin Said and Abdulkarim Mohammed, midfielders: Natnaiel Zeleke, versatile Mulualem Mesfin, strikers: Gadisa Mebrate, Ame Mohammed and Getaneh Kebede are the seven players that put their signature to work under Webetu for the coming two seasons.
