Bahir Dar’s Tsegaye Abera Fined for his celebration

Bahir Dar’s Tsegaye Abera topped the Ethiopia Premier League’s latest sanctions following week 27 fixtures.

The league’s discipline committee has announced the latest disciplinary actions based on reports from referees and match officials. This week, only one player received a punishment: Tsegaye Abera.

Tsegaye, who was on the scoresheet in his team’s draw with Ethiopia Nigd Bank, netted the opening goal of the match. The former Arbaminch City player then performed his signature celebration by kicking the corner post.

The post was broken and needed to be changed with a replacement immediately.

The committee reviewed this in the Referee and match commissioner’s reports and decided that the player must replace the post at the cost of 10, 000 birr. It will be recalled that Sidama Bunna’s Yigezu Bogale was punished for a similar offence a year ago.
