Former Ghana U20 coach Sellas Tetteh is strongly linked with the Ghana U23 coaching post.
The soft-spoken tactician is currently on the books of Tamale City FC and has rejected an offer from Bechem United to manage the Hunters U17 side.
The GFA Normalisation Committee is on the search for a permanent coach to take over from Ibrahim Tanko who has performed creditably since taking over the reigns, eliminating Togo and Gabon on the road to qualification.
Tanko remains the only assistant to coach Kwesi Appiah the senior national team following the sacking of Maxwell Konadu.
The NC want Tanko to see Tanko offer his full backing to Kwesi Appiah in preparing Ghana’s team for the 2019 AFCON thus a need to appoint a compete handler for the Black Meteors.
According to reports, Maxwell Konadu’s name initially popped up for the job but concerns have been raised about him.
Tetteh, 62, has vast international experience managing Ghana’s junior teams from U17 to U20 and winning both the African Youth Championship and FIFA U20 World Cup – first and only time won by an African country.
The former Hearts of Oak player has managed Rwanda and Sierra Leone since leaving the Ghana U20 post and trusted to do a decent job when given the job, according the position of some members of the appointing authority.
The Ghana U23 side have eliminated Togo and Gabon on the road to qualification and have North African powerhouse Algeria to clear off in June.
The Ghana U23 have Leganes’ Kwabena Owusu, Joseph Paintsil of Genk fame, Bernard Tekpetey who plays for Paderborn and William Dankyi of Hearts of Oak all in their fold.
