The Sierra Leone Sports Ministry is said to have rejected Sellas Tetteh’s appointment as head Coach for the Sierra Leone National team.
Tetteh, former Ghana U20 Coach was confirmed head Coach for the Leone Stars.
The experienced Ghanaian tactician was reappointed by the West African side who recounted his works as head Coach for the Sierra Leone National team three years ago when he took charge.
However, the decision could be rescinded by the Sierra Leone FA after the government refused to accept the Coach’s appointment.
“The report of the Ministry’s representatives also observed that representative from the Sierra Leone Football Association on the interview panel came with a premeditated mind of appointing the said coach,” part of a statement released on Wednesday August 14 read.
“Therefore the Ministry does not recognize Sellas Tetteh as the Head Coach of the Sierra Leone National Team A because the process was incomplete.
“The Ministry of Sports want to assure all Sierra Leoneans that the government is committed to supporting sports in the country and the process of appointing the National Team A coach will soon come to a conclusion.”
Sellas Tetteh remains the only African Coach to have won the FIFA U20 World Cup after guiding the Black Satellites team to the historic feat in 2009.
