Ghanaian born Sierra Leone’s National Team Coach, Sellas Tetteh, according to media reports from his native Ghana, has confirmed that the National FA owes him two months backlog wages.
Tetteh, 59, a former Liberty Professionals coach, would not sign a long-term deal with the Leone Stars until all his outstanding financial arrears are cleared.
Though he could not comment when Football Sierra Leone contacted him, Tetteh had however told Graphic Sports in Ghana that, “For now, it’s 50-50 because I’m still waiting for my two-month salary arrears before I could consider their offer.”
“The people really want me back because of the work I did. They are not playing any league there. I have to do a lot of groundwork to build a team for the qualifiers,” Tetteh explained.
Tetteh also indicated that: ”Now, the government through the ministry has joined the FA to let me stay because they are impressed with my work.”
Tetteh was the architect of Ghana glory during the 2009 Under-20 World Cup which they won.
He was appointed as caretaker coach for Sierra Leone in August 2015. His initial contract expired last October after Leone Stars were eliminated in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers by Chad before extending his stay.
