“I owe Sly my everything. He made me a footballer when no one believed in me,” Tetteh told

“I have started plans to build a mosque I will name the mosque after him for all the good he has done to footballers not only me.

“I can say with confidence that a lot us would not have achieved our dreams of becoming footballers but for the contribution of Sly Tetteh.”
