Adama: Ready to mount surprise comeback


Bottom of the table Adama Ketema sent a message to other premier league clubs that aggressive shopping in the midseason players’ transfer market is not all about relegation survival. Five foreign players including a 41-year-old striker and a giant shot stopper, Adama stood the highest spender in the mid-season players’ transfer market.
The 1.93m giant goal keeper from Mali means no more target practice for rival teams that humiliated Adama in first round fixtures. The Malian international played for different local sides before he served his national team on five occasions.
Conceding the highest number of goals (30) in the first round, bringing in two central defenders is more than logical move by the club once the flag ship carrier of Oromia football. Formerly with Sidama Bunna Edward Lawrence and a Malian central defender formerly with AS Police Lamini Komare, Adama is sure to boast one of the strongest defense lines. Former SK Abidjan and Esperance de Tunis Elise defensive midfielder Dimankil from Burkina Faso gives the side an extra hand in manipulating the midfield which was the weakest point in the squad. Add to that, the 24-year-old Guinean international striker Sekouba Kamara, it is all written in Adama’s ambition to go further than survival.
“The three weeks break due to international fixtures is seen as a blessing to workout team chemistry,” the recently appointed Coach Zeray Mulu said appearing to have every firearm under his command to mount a successful comeback before the end of the season.
