Coach Orlando Wellington has applied to re-take the national Under-20 team, four months after failing to defend the African Youth Championship.

The Berekum Chelsea assistant was in charge of the Black Satellites which bundled out of the tournament in South Africa at the Group stage.

Wellington was heavily criticized due to his inability to defend the trophy won in Rwanda two years earlier when he was deputy to Sellas Tetteh.

The former Heart of Lions head coach wants another opportunity to redeem his image.

"I want another chance with team and make it right and that's why I applied for the job again," Wellington said.

"The process that the FA has introduced is fine and will make it competitive for all of us but I think I have the track record and so if given the chance, will do well.

"However, the others who have also applied are also equally competent and therefore we’ll leave the GFA to decide."

Wellington was named the 2010/2011 Ghana Premier League Coach of the Year for winning the league title for Berekum Chelsea .
