The Walias Cut Ties with two more Assistant Coaches

ADDIS ABABA – Two more assistant coaches left the national team of the Ethiopian men’s national football team on Tuesday.

The Ethiopian Football Federation announced their departure in a statement posted on twitter.

The EFF said it has parted ways with asistant coach Anwar Yassin and goalkeeper coach Desalegn Gebregiorgis on Tuesday.

This comes a week after another Asrat Abate left his position as assistant coache of the Walias.

“The Ethiopian Football Federation would like to thank Anwar Yassin, Dessalen Gebregiorgis, and Asrat Abate for their service in the national team and wish them the best in their future,” read the statement.

The former legends of the Walias have been serving in the coaching staff of the former head of the national team Wubetu Abate.

Wubetu resigned from his head coach role of the Walias fotnights ago after serving for more than two and half year.

Wubetu and his staff helped Ethiopia to qualify for the 2021 Afcon and 2022 Chan continental tournaments.

Their departure, however, follows the Walias’ back-to-back defeat to Guinea in the 2023 Afcon qualifiers late last month.

The results left Ethiopia at bottom of the Group G with three points and the fate of qualifications is out of their hands.

Guinea and Egypt lead the group with nine points and both will qualify if they draw when they meet in June.
