Lemessa Pens Stars Deal

Free State Stars have bolstered the team’s striking department with the addition of Fikru Lemessa to the squad.  Lemessa joins Ea Lla Koto as a free agent, following the expiry of his contract at Thanh Hoa in Vietnam.

It is the Ethiopian’s third spell in South Africa’s PSL. He first arrived in Mzansi in 2006, after being spotted by the Orlando Pirates scouts and turned out for the team.

 

The 26-year-old later moved to SuperSport United before leaving the country for FK Mlada Boleslav of the Czech Republic. Lemessa returned to SuperSport and signed for the team in the 2010/11 season.

 

He has now decided to return to the PSL for a third stint after ending his short stay in Vietnam. 

 

News coming out of Ethiopia is that Lemessa has penned a short-term deal with the Bethlehem-based outfit that will run until the end of the season.
