Ethiopia terminate coach Yohannes Sahile's contract

(May 03, 2016, (BBC))--Ethiopia coach Yohannes Sahile has had his contract terminated after the team's poor run of form. The Ethiopian Football Federation president Juneydi Basha told BBC Sport that "the main reason for the decision was poor results at CHAN as well as in World Cup and African Cup of nations qualifying."

Ethiopia failed to get past the group stage of the Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) in Rwanda earlier this year picking up just one point from three games.

Last year they were knocked out of 2018 World Cup qualifying by Congo losing 6-4 on aggregate.
More recently results against Algeria have left them with little chance of qualifying for the 2017 Nations Cup in Gabon.

Firstly they lost 7-1 away in Algeria in March and then drew 3-3 at home with the same opponents in two consecutive qualifiers. Ethiopia had led on three occasions in the second match but were unable to secure victory. Read more from BBC »
