Sellas Tetteh: Ghana U-20 World Cup winning boss receives GHC50,000 from President Akuffo Addo

Ghana U-20 FIFA World Cup manager Sellas Tetteh has been given GHC50,000 by the President of the country in what to be used to settle medical bills, according to latest reports. 

President of Ghana, H.E Nana Akuffo Addo has donated a sum of GHC50,000 to veteran gaffer, Sellas Tetteh who is currently ill and without any coaching role at the moment.

The 66 year old is known very well in the Ghanaian game, having led almost all Ghana’s national teams including a sensational achievement of guiding the Black Satellites to win the FIFA U-20 World Cup- Egypt 2009.

The former Rwandan national team coach hasn’t been feeling well for sometime now and has been pushing the GFA and the Sports Ministry to settle his unpaid bonuses after the 2009 triumph.

However, on Monday, February 20, 2023, a delegation from the Ministry of Youth and Sports led by Hon. Evans Opoku Bobie, handed a cash of GHC50,000 to Sellas Tetteh at his humble abode in Accra.
The donation was from the first gentleman of the land to cater for his medical bills as they look to see him fully fit sooner.
He was just recently surprised by Black Stars captain Andre Ayew who also gifted him an undisclosed amount of money for his upkeep.
Despite being a top manager, Sellas Tetteh is not a familiar name in the Ghana Premier League with his short stint in the Ghanaian top flight recognized at only Liberty Professionals.
Tetteh rose to prominence in the 2009 U-20 World Cup in Africa beating powerhouse Brazil on penalties to make Ghana the first Africa country to win the FIFA U-20 World Cup.
