Kassaye Arage impacting Ethiopia Coffee

Kassaye Arage’s much anticipated handiwork at Ethiopia Coffee appeared to come to be realistic following the first two matches at Addis Ababa City Cup.
“I was not sure that Kassaye could deliver what he promised at his arrival. But now I changed my mind and hope he could bring some change” a longtime admirer of Kassaye suggested.
A group opening 1-0 defeat to Sebeta Town then a 1-0 victory over Welwalo-Adigrat, Ethiopia Coffee is in pole position to secure a semifinal place at the Addis Ababa City Cup. A seasoned Coach Wubetu Abate at the helm boasting a foreign goalkeeper and two strikers with veteran midfielders should have had full domination over a squad full of fresh faces including the team captain Fetudin Jemal.
Though well organized and spearheaded by the two foreigners, Sebeta took 81 minutes to break the dead lock meaning Ethiopia Coffee defense line managed to stand strong while the midfield struggled to dominate the show. The credit goes to Kassaye for making his players believe his tactical play.
Ethiopia Coffee’s second match on Thursday against Welwalo-Adigrat ended in 1-0 victory for the home side the winning goal at the 62nd minute coming from Abel Kebede. Not a single foreign player in the squad Coffee dominated not only the ball possession but also the goal trials against the side with four foreigners including the goal keeper. Though it takes longer times to come out of their own half, The Brown Shirts performed better than Welwalo and focused in counter attack.
Although it is too early to give judgment and the home support was not an easy advantage to Coffee, one can assume that Kassaye may show fans the other face of football made in Ethiopia.
