Ethiopian Football: EFF sacks Coach Iffy Onuora
Addis Ababa Ã¢â‚¬â€œ The Ethiopian Football Federation (EFF) has sacked national coach Iffy Onuora just 9 months after he took charge of the Ethiopian national football team, reported EthioFootball.com.
The Scottish/Nigerian coach was sacked following the teamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 4-0 defeat at the hands of the Nigerian Green Eagles in Group B of the 2012 Orange Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Abuja last month.
The Ethiopian national team played 11 matches during coach OnuoraÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s tenure, winning 4, drawing in 1 and losing 6 matches. The team scored 12 goals and conceded 21 goals In those matches.
Coach Onuora received $13,000 a month in salary, free accommodation and local transportation, plus two free tickets to the UK per year. Although this package might not seem much by international soccer standard, his Ã¢â‚¬Å“accomplishmentsÃ¢â‚¬Â were no better than any other Ethiopian coaches of the past who were not making more than $500 a month.
