Sellas Tetteh, the former coach of the Black Satellites, received a donation of GHC50,000 from the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Foundation. Tetteh led the nation’s under-20 squad to the 2009 World Cup victory.
Tetteh, who recently battled illness, received the first gift as part of GFA Foundation’s initiative to aid struggling individuals.
President of GFA, Kurt Okraku, recognized coach’s achievements and addressed media accusations about owed bonuses and wages by GFA or Ministry of Youth and Sports.
Sellas Tetteh, meanwhile, had already received a grant of a comparable sum from the Ministry of Youth and Sports in February in response to repeated requests in the media to support the seasoned coach who was facing health issues.
Andre Ayew, the captain of the Black Satellites team that Sellas Tetteh led to World Cup victory in 2009, had also paid him a visit and given him a donation of an undisclosed sum of money.
The former head coach of the Rwandan national team has previously coached the Black Starlets and Sierra Leone.
Additionally, he guided the Black Satellites to third place at the 2013 U-20 World Cup in Turkey.
