Former Ghana U-20 coach Sellas Tetteh has thrown his support behind Jimmy Cobblah to turn things around at the 2019 Africa Youth Championship despite their underwhelming performances in games ahead of the tournament.
The Ghana U-20 side have tasted three successive defeats in their preparatory games ahead of the Africa Youth Championship which is scheduled to come off in Niger from February 2 to 17, 2019.
A section of Ghanaian football pundits have lambasted coach Jimmy Cobblah for the team's disappointing outings having conceded six goals in his last three warm-up games.
However, Tetteh who guided the team in 2009 to win World Cup in Egypt, has urged coach Cobblah not to be discouraged by the results but rather focus on how he will rectify his mistakes before the tournament kick-off.
"Ghanaians should not be discouraged by the results of the Black Satellites friendlies.” Tetteh stated on Atinka FM.
"The coach should concentrate and turn things around at the African Youth Championship.”
The team will engage Nigerien side Sahel FC in their last preparatory game at the Stade Municipal- Niamey before the start of the tournament.
The two-time African Champions have been drawn in Group B with Mali, Senegal and Burkina Faso.
