CCTV: Ethiopia Football Federation Has Terminated Head Coach Yoahnnes Sahle's Contract And Also Dismissed His Entire Technical Bench
The federation cited the team's poor run of form as the reason for dismissal. Many were still shocked by the decision after the team's recent 3-3 draw against Algeria in Addis Ababa. Sahle has been sacked exactly one year since he took over from Portuguese Mariano Barreto, who paid the price for failing to qualify the team for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations. Former international Gebremedhin Haile has been appointed on an interim basis. Ethiopia next faces Lesotho and Seychelles in the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
