Premier league head coaches in question

Speculation is mounting that head coaches Ashnafi  Bekele and Kifle Boltena may not see sunlight in the premier league second round fixtures.
Injury hit Defense Force is currently 13th on the table with a game in hand and club supporters have lost of confidence on head coach Ashenafi Bekele who helped the side to be a strong title contender last season.

Although having strong strike force Bedasso Hora, Oumed Oukri and Chala Driba all had been in the injury list for most of the first round thus the side was glued near bottom of the table. The first Ethiopian head coach to pocket 100,000 Birr signing fee that go along 12,000 Birr monthly salary, Ashenafi is hardly with a solution to turn his ship in to safe hands thus likely to get the boot even before second round  kick-off.
Mean while first season in the premier league Air Force appears relegation hot favorite. Kifle Boltena the coach who sent Insurance to relegation then steered Air Force to promotion in his very first season appears short of insight on how to revive the side’s spirit to stay at the upper tier. With two wins and four draws, Air Force is at the bottom of the table with just ten points the likely candidate to relegation at the end of the current season. “I am not against Kifle but I believe Debrezeit needs a premier league side to inspire so many youngsters  to bein love with football” Adnew Ababu a football fan from the town 45km from the Capital remarked.
