Ashenafi Bekele Appointed Fasil Ketema New Boss

The long time speculation of former Ethiopia Bunna Coach US based Kassaye Arage’s move came to rest following the appointment of Ashenafi.Bekele as the new boss at title aspiring Fasil Ketema.
The 2021 Ethiopian premier league champions Fasil is currently 10th on the league table collecting 17 points from 13 matches.
More than eight clubs in the past two decades including Ethiopian national team, one of the most wandering coaches in the league Ashenafi signed an 18 months contract agreement with Fasil for an unofficial 80000 Birr monthly salary plus bonus and expenses.
Having more than half a dozen national team players and three foreigners in the squad, Ashenafi’s priority is said to bring about a significant dressing room order and discipline and teamwork among big name players.
Though critics suggested that Ashenafi’s resume in the past two decades is not such an impressive one thus hardly capable of bringing back Fasil to title contention, the club officials decided he is the right coach not only help the side to recover from mid season slump but also achieve the club’s long term dream of building sustainable youth development.
Considered an expert in building a strong defensive line that goes along with deadly counter attacks, Ashenafi’s wandering of clubs every single season is what made the club supporters worried.
Ashenafi took over the hot seat from Hailu Negash who got sacked less than a full season at the hot seat. The former Ethiopia-NegedBank, Mechal, Jimma AbaBuna, Adama Ketema and Hadiya Hossana Coach Ashenafi’s debut match is against relegation threatened Ethio-Electric.
