Zelalem leaves Debub Police


Hottest favorite to relegate at the end of the current season Debub Police parted ways with Coach Zelalem Shiferaw just four months in to his one year contract. Zelalem joined the club late in the players’ transfer market thus he built a squad out of second fiddlers.
Defeated in all home games except a 1-0 win over bottom of the table Dedebit and two away goals less draws with Diredawa and Sehul-Shere, last season’s Super League champion Debub Police collected five points from 13 matches thus second from the bottom a point clear. One of the most traveled Coaches Zelalem who last year left Dire Dawa in shabby form only to join Woldya on its way down to relegation, took over at Debub Police in September signing a one year contract.
But things went sour despite signing old horses the likes of Mulualem Regassa and foreign players including two from Nigeria two weeks ago, Zelalem appeared to be once again on the run from a likely side to go down. “Pressure was there for my resignation but I waited until it came from the club. When I saw the green light from the club, I agreed to resign,” Zelalem told Soccer Ethiopia.
What is amazing about Ethiopian Football is a rumor Zelaem is going to join another Premier League side at the start of the second round. “He is already in a scouting mission to sign players for his new side for the second round” an insider told Capital Sport.
