Zeray, Fasil: handed a two year contract extension


Despite no news from Ethiopian Football Federation about how and when the premier league new season starting date, top tier clubs have already started renewing contracts with coaches as well as players. Emerging soccer power Sidama Bunna and Bahirdar Kenema are the latest to renew contracts to their respective coaches.
Newly groomed Sidama Region football club Sidama Bunna handed a two year lucrative contract to Zeray Mulu. The hardworking, humble and friendly personality, Zeray is considered a miracle performer at Sidama building a side capable of strong title contention in the past two seasons. Taking over since 2018 midseason Zeray helped Sidama finish third in 2019 and fourth this year when the season suspended due to Covid19. “We have so many home works before the start of the season including signing additional fire powers plus rebuilding our defense line to stay strong in the title contention” Zeray told reporters.
A remarkable first season including unbeaten homerun at Bahirdar Kenema, Fasil Tekalegn is handed a two years contract extension. Fasil Tekalegn who started his coaching carrier at Saint George Youth team took his first job as assistant at the senior team as well as the national side. Learning the ropes under five different foreign coaches Fasil’s solo mission at “The Blue’s” turned out a success story thus a two years contract along with a green light to sign additional fire powers for the coming season. Eight wins, three draws and six defeats Bahirdar was fifth on the league table before the Premier League was suspended in March.
