CECAFA 2017: Disquiet in Ethiopia camp over inadequate kitting

Walias’ training session at Addis Ababa Stadium.

There are mummers in Ethiopia camp over inadequate kitting of the team currently taking part in the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup in Kenya.

Goalkeeping department is most affected as keepers lack enough gloves.

Ethiopia Football Federation (EFF) pledged to set full kit to Kenya after the team had left Addis Ababa for the tournament but has not fulfilled the obligation.

The federation is blaming kit supplier Errea of Italy for the delay as they have not sent the consignment.

The complains are not new as coach Ashenafi Bekele has been forced in the past to dig into his pockets to buy kits and now the players feel neglected by the FA.

Ethiopia began their campaign in group B of the tournament with a 3-0 win over South Sudan but today fell 4-1 to Burundi in their second outing.
