Former Sierra Leone caretaker coach, Sellas Tetteh, has been appointed the new head coach of Dansoman-based club Liberty Professionals, Football Sierra Leone understands.

He replaces George Lamptey who exited the club at the end of last season citing personal reasons.

Tetteh, 60, left Sierra Leone after Leone Stars final 2017 AFCON qualifier against Ivory Coast claiming two months unpaid wages.

Tetteh was the architect of Ghana glory during the 2009 Under-20 World Cup which they won.

The former Ghana U-20 and Rwanda have agreed to lead Liberty into the new campaign as head coach having previously served as the Technical Director for the club.

He was appointed as caretaker coach for Sierra Leone in August 2015 and his initial contract expired last October after Leone Stars were eliminated in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers by Chad before extending his stay.

The Ghana football season will commence early next month, according to reports.
