Yohannes Sahle: the new Boss at Mekele Ketema


Former Ethiopian national team head coach Yohannes Sahle is appointed to manage the newly promoted premier league side Mekele Ketema. Following his appointment that goes with the signing of two players from Ghana, Mekele Ketema joined the league’s exclusive heavy weights party.
He was appointed head coach to Dedebit FC followed by his appointment to Ethiopian national team hot seat in which time he led Waliya’s in to CHAN Cup final. Later on he lost his job for failing a qualification to African Nations’ Cup final only to return for a brief second stint with Dedebit FC.
Famous for handing chances to young talents the likes of 2017 EBC Player of the Year Waliya’s central defender Aschalew Tamene and the first Ethiopian to play in European League Biniyam Hailu, Yohannes is expected to help Mekele Ketema emerge as a soccer force capable of a strong premier League title contention.
A high caliber head coach that go along with more than a dozen home grown new signees plus four foreign players from Ghana: Michael Akoffo, Masalachi Baba Adam, Achampong Amos and Bismark Obamiang, the sky appears the limit for Yohannes to win the league title in his very first season with the club.
“The only thing apart his coaching capacity and knowhow, what I don’t understood is that he never get through his contract durations both at national team and Dedebit. This time I hope he will deliver up to his capacity and stay long in to his contract” a former player who served under him at both national team and Dedebit suggested.
