The Deputy Minister for Youth and Sports, Hon. Evans Opoku Bobie, on Monday, 20th February 2023, led a delegation of officials from the Ministry to pay a visit to the ailing former coach of the Black Satellites, Sellas Tetteh at his residence in Accra.
The purpose of the visit was to ascertain the health condition of the coach and also make a cash donation of Fifty Thousand Ghana Cedis (GH₵ 50,000.00) on behalf of His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to meet the medical expenses of the coach.
The former Black Starlets and Black Satellites coach and Black Stars assistant coach has been in the news lately calling on well-meaning Ghanaians to come to his aid due to his deteriorating health.
Sellas Tetteh has disclosed that he has yet to receive payment for leading Ghana to victory at the U20 FIFA World Cup in 2009.
Tetteh was in charge of the Black Satellites team that became the first African team to win the U-20 World Cup in Egypt over a decade ago.
Tetteh, who also coached the Black Stars, claims he has been neglected despite making history.
He recently recovered from a serious illness and is still fighting for credit for masterminding Ghana’s victory on the world stage, after also winning the U-20 Africa Cup of Nations in 2009.
Prior to his return to Liberty Professionals in 2021, he served as the national team coach for Rwanda and Sierra Leone between 2009 and 2019.
