The 2009 Fifa Under-20 World Cup winning coach has been assigned to a new national team

The Ghana Football Association has announced changes to the coaching staff of three national teams.

Headlining the list of newcomers is 2009 Fifa Under-20 World Cup winning coach Sellas Tetteh, who has been named new boss of the senior women’s football team.

Tetteh’s appointment comes following the recent resignation of Mas-Ud Didi Dramani from the role.

Ghana’s participation at next month’s Wafu Women’s Tournament aside, the 61-year-old is set to spearhead the campaign to win this year’s Africa Women Cup of Nations on home soil.

Former Black Queens defender Mercy Tagoe, meanwhile, has retained her place as the team’s assistant coach.

Elsewhere, former Wa All Stars and Inter Allies coach Jimmy Cobblah has been assigned to the national men’s under-20 team. He will be deputized by Nuru Ahmed. 

The duo will look to return the Black Satellites to the Africa U-20 Cup of Nations after the side – then led by Dramani - missed the last edition in Zambia.

At the U-17 level, former Asante Kotoko and Hearts of oak coach Abdul Karim Zito replaces Samuel Paa Kwasi Fabin as leader of the outfit.

To be assisted by Yaw Preko, Zito has been charged to continue from where Fabin left off, the latter having led Ghana to the quarterfinals of last year’s Fifa Under-17 World Cup in India.
