Ghana's No. 1

Weah riled by Ghana snub for Tetteh

Published on: 19 May 2010

African football legend George Weah has descended on the Ghana FA for failing to tap the expertise of Fifa Under-20 World Cup winning coach Sellas Tetteh.

The 1995 World Footballer of the Year believes the 53-year-old should have been given a role in Black Stars technical set-up after his historic achievement last year.

"I don't understand why he (Sellas Tetteh) is not part of the coaching staff. He won the World Cup at the Under 20 level and most of his players are in the national team. Those players were even taken to the Nations Cup and they did well," Weah said on local radio station.

Tetteh is in-charge of the Rwanda national team and has been ruled of playing any role in Ghana's World Cup campaign.

"Because he was never considered, he had to look elsewhere and that is how come he accepted the Rwanda job. If the FA had made room for him, he will feel safe and recognized," Weah added.
