Sellas Tetteh
Communications director of the football governing body speaks on their blunder

The Ghana Football Association has accepted goofing in their announcement of Sellas Tetteh as the new head coach of the national senior female soccer team.

Last month, the football governing body named the 2009 Fifa Under-20 World Cup winner as the new boss of the Black Queens, replacing Mas-Ud Didi Dramani, who quit the team for a new challenge in Denmark.

However, the 61-year-old has not been seen with the women’s outfit since the announcement, neither did he travel with the team to Cote d’Ivoire for the ongoing Wafu Championship.

“We made a mistake on the publication that coach Sellas Tetteh has been appointed to take over the Black Queens,” GFA communications director Ibrahim Sannie Daara told Asempa FM in his explanation of the former Rwanda coach’s absence from the team.

“We have not officially spoken to him on the coaching job.

“It’s not that we are doubting his competence.

“He is a one of the finest coaches in the country, but no contract has been signed.”

In Tetteh’s absence, assistant coach Mercy Tagoe is leading the Black Queens at the Wafu Championship, where they are set to play nemesis Nigeria in the semi-final on Thursday.

The competition is part of Ghana’s preparations ahead of the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations later this year.
