Adane Girma and Alula dropped from Waliaa Ibex squad to face Mali

By Admin,

Ethiopia Walia Ibex coach Mariano Barreto has dropped four key players from his team that will face Mali over the weekend in an Afcon 2015 qualifiers to be played at the National Stadium in Addis Ababa.

Among the culprits dropped include long serving midfilders  and defender   Adane Girma  and Alula Girma who played a crucial role in both the qualifiers against Algeria and Malawi.

According to coach Barreto he took the bold decision after the players failed to meet his expectations in training as he was also paving way for Europe based players who arrived on Tuesday at the team training camp in  Addis Ababa.

“I know many people were suprised but as a coach there are decisions one has to take according to the players form but that does not mean they will not be considered for other assignments and this is by working hard to regain back their places”Mariano told

Other players dropped included Anteneh Tesfaye & Yohannes Bezabeh (GK) left the team today
