Sellas Tetteh elated by Ayew's progress
Coach Sellas Tetteh couldn’t be more proud with the progress made by Andre Ayew since providing him with his biggest platform to shine in 2009.
The ex Rwanda coach was responsible for igniting what seemed a dwindling career of the son of legendary Abedi Pele by installing him as captain of the victorious 2009 U-20 side at both the African and World championships in Rwanda and Egypt respectively.
It was at a time the then 20-year-old has just come off a disappointing debut campaign with the Black Stars at the Nations Cup in 2008 and was declared surplus to requirements at French giants Marseille – resulting to him being farmed out on loan to lower tier club Arles Avignon.
Ayew however after excelling at both competitions gradually blossomed into his own and was subsequently rewarded with not only just a return to Marseille with a fat contract, but emerged as one of the key players for both club and country and is now attracting interest from all around Europe.
And Tetteh who always insisted he had a gem of a captain then feels vindicated for sticking with the young prodigy even through the tough times.
“I am so happy with the progress made by Andre Ayew but like I said before, he is not finished yet,” Tetteh told GHANAsoccernet.com.
“This boy has even more things to achieve ahead of him and Ghanaians should keep supporting him for he is destined for greatness.”
Tetteh was however philosophical on the subject of the Marseille enforcer being the future captain of the Black Stars.
“I don’t want to talk about that for now but Kum Fa Ye Kum, what is written is written so we wait to see,” he added.
