Kidus Giorgis faces three long months without Ugandan international Brian Umony after the forward suffered a broken leg early in Sunday’s Ethiopian Premier League game against ArbaMinch Ketema.
Umony, a regular starter for the horsemen, has a broken femur that will keep him out for at least three month. The club confirmed the striker will further assess the damage likewise will likely to stay in Addis Ababa.
Kidus Giorgis dealt in a huge blow on losing Umony as they only have veteran striker Adane Girma to rely on when they face Seychellois side St. Michele United in CAF Champions League Preliminary round on Sunday in Addis.
Umony won the Ethiopian Premier League and Super Cup after joining them back in January 2015. The Horsemen managed to sign Nigerian attacking midfielder Godwin Chika. The injury of Umony might tempt the club to look out for former striker Salahdin Said as a replacement. Said is now a free agent after terminating his contract with Algerian giants MC Alger. The Walias striker has been training with Kidus Giorgis for the past four weeks.
