Ethiopian Coffee taps Serbian tactician

Ethiopian Coffee FC is set to appoint Serbian coach Nikola Kavazovic for the upcoming Premier League season.

The club’s Management Board reviewed the experience of several candidates before turning their sites on hiring the Serbian coach. The 47-year-old, Kavazovic, has previously coached teams in Tajikistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh league teams. He has also coached in Africa, managing Township Rollers in Botswana, Free State Stars in South Africa, and AFC Leopards in Kenya.

Club officials attended the recent Sheger Derby match, which ended in a draw, alongside the club president and manager.

An official announcement of Kavazovic’s appointment is expected to come in a press release soon. However, details regarding the duration of his initial contract have not been disclosed.

Ethiopian Coffee has a huge fan base in the Ethiopian Premier League, making it one of the most supported teams. Over the years, the club has employed many domestic and foreign coaches. However, the team’s performance has remained unsatisfactory. The club has hired foreign coaches in the past due to poor performance.

Fans hope Kavazovic’s appointment can help the team succeed in the upcoming Premier League season. But only time will tell if this change of leadership provides the boost the club needs.

While hiring a foreign coach with international experience seems a logical move, the club’s past struggles suggest that simply changing coaches may not be enough. A holistic approach that addresses player recruitment, youth development, infrastructure and management may be needed for the club to improve.
