Gebremedin Haile Mekele flying high

Four star general Amanuel G/Kidan is emerging as a strong contender for the season’s top scorer award, Mekele is riding high to challenge the heavy weights at the top of the league table. In top form Mekele is currently second on the roster in goal differences with the Saints each collecting 26 points, but Mekele has two games in hand.
With six wins and three draws in the past nine matches including victories over Hawassa, Ethiopia Bunna and Fasil respectively, Coach Gebremedin Haile appears in full battle gear to retain the league title. Many suggested a mistake was made when Gebremedin left to play international fixtures to defending champion Jimma AbaJifar. However, Gebre has proven his critics wrong by working miracles with Mekele catching up with the title contenders even before the end of the first round. Instead of headaches over a chaotic situation, AbaJifar, Gebremedin have boldly moved to Mekele to build a strong squad considered by many the most balanced side. They boast a merciless strike force that has bagged 18 goals so far and a disciplined defensive line conceding only eight goals.
The home adventure where they demolished Mekelakeya 5-2, with Ammanuel bagging four followed by a 1-0 victory over Fasil on Thursday, the team’s consistency in the past nine outings makes Mekele appear capable of mounting a strong title contention. If the far dream comes true at the end of the season, the former popular player with the Ethiopian national team and Saint George, Gebremedin will have a place in Football’s history book as the first back to back Premier League champion.
