Ethiopia name Saintfiet as coach
Ethiopia have appointed former Namibia coach Tom Saintfiet as the new man in charge of their national team.
The 38-year-old Belgian replaces Briton Iffy Onuora, who was dismissed last month after falling out with the Ethiopia Football Federation (EFF).
His first game in charge will be a 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at home to Nigeria next month.
Ethiopia are currently third in Group B of the qualifiers with three points, behind Guinea and Nigeria.
In their last qualifier in March Ethiopia lost 4-0 to Nigeria in Abuja.
Last year Saintfiet was at the centre of two controversies when he left Namibia to coach Zimbabwe.
He was then refused a work permit to take charge of Zimbabwe, despite signing a contract with the countty's football association.
He never not got the necessary clearance to work in Zimbabwe and eventually went to coach a club in Jordan.
