Ethiopia Nigd Bank midfielder Biniaym Belay is reportedly handed a try-out stint at Bundesliga 2 side SG Dynamo Dresden. The midfielder will jet out to Germany later on Monday night. The trail has been organized by the German national Mr. Joachim Fickert.
Fickert told Soccer Ethiopia that two German clubs showed interest on Biniyam Belay. Biniyam will travel to German to have a trail in Dynamo Dresden later tonight. The club is now competing in second tier Germany football as they concluded the 2016/17 season in fifth place. He will be given a two weeks trail and then we will see our options as there are also another invitation from other German club. I reckon the tray-outs this time around will be a piece of cake than that we had last season with Borussia Mőnchengladbach.”
Fickert, who has a vast experience and profound knowledge in youth development following his work in Mali, Benin, Cambodia, Congo and Rwanda, further noted if Biniyam succeeds and lands a deal in Europe, it will also open the door for other Ethiopian youngsters as well. Biniyam has caught the interests of many local football enthusiasts following his mesmerizing form in the Ethiopian U-17 national side. His astounding talent even earned him a call up to the senior national team the then coach Yohannis Sahle. He has been a regular starter in the now relegated Ethiopia Nigd Bank in 2016/17 premier league season.
Dynamo Dresden, established in 1953, is German outfit based in the East Germany city of Dresden. The club is one of the most popular and successful sides of East Germany. They previously played in the toptier German league between 1991 and 1995 but were unable to regain Bundesliga status after poor results saw them dangling in the lower leagues. They are now competing in Bundesliga 2. They manage to finish 5th with 50 points in the 2016/17 season.
