Fasil signed three; Bunna kicked out big name players


Though the newly elected Ethiopian Football Federation has not yet come up with a solution for the highly criticized non-transparent and exaggerated players’ transfer saga, Ethiopia Bunna and Fasil Ketema became active participants in the recently opened players’ transfer window.
Strapped with a staggering artificial annual budget, short of fulfilling contract agreements at the final months of league seasons and unfair for teams on the way to promotion, the middle-men led Ethiopian Football players’ recently opened transfer window is getting momentum.
According to latest news from sources close to the club, the talk of the town is more about those who left than the new signees. Ethiopia Bunna said no to extend contracts to nine players including two foreign players. Long serving team Captain Mesud Mohammed, play maker Elias Mamo, and Aschalew Girma are the big name players while Aklilu Ayanaw, Efrem Wondowosen, Alemayehu Muleta and Aklilu Walelgn are all on their way out. The much appreciated goal keeper Harrison Hesu and under achiever striker Baptist Faye also parted ways with the club that finished third in the recently closed league season.
The French Boss said to be busy in looking for a new squad has signed two players both from the relegated Arbaminch Ketema. Left full back Tekalegn Dejene and famous for playing both a striker and central defender Temesgen Castro are the duo that signed a two years contract with Ethiopia Bunna.
The newly appointed Head Coach to Fasil Ketema Wubetu Abate also kicked off his squad building by signing three new players. The most talked about player in Wolayta-Dicha’s international fixtures play maker Bezabeh Meleyo, Dedebit and national team winger Shemeket Gugsa and the mid fielder who helped Mekele Ketema to finish fourth in the past season Habtamu Tekeste have joined the Gondor based side Fasil Ketema signing a two years contract.
