The 2016/17 Ethiopian Premier League competition concluded today with Getaneh Kebede of Dedebit breaking Yordanos Abay‘s 16-year-old goal scoring record and Ethiopia Nigd Bank, Jimma Abba Bunna and Addis Ababa Kenema being relegated to the National League.
Getaneh scored his 24th & 25th goals (30 matches) of the season in his team’s 4-2 defeat at the hands of Wolayta Dicha.
Getaneh has a sensational season in the league but to be fair, Yordanos Abay of EELPA scored 24 goals in the 2000/01 Ethiopian Premier League season playing 26 games, four less than Getaneh.
