‘Let’s Celebrate Sly Tetteh’

Head coach of Liberty Professionals, George Lamptey and B/A Utd coach Frimpong Manso, believe Ghanaian players like Sulley Muntari, Michael Essien, Asamoag Gyan, Kwadwo Asamoah, etc must do something better in remembrance of the late Sly Tetteh.

The late Alhaji Sly Tetteh who was part of the Hasaacas team that won the WAFU championship in 1982, passed on three years ago after he was rushed from the Robert Mensah Stadium and died at the Cape Coast hospital.

Speaking in an interview at the venue of the incident with ATL FM in Cape Coast, Coach Lamptey said, “This is long overdue. Our players should have done something better for the man by now.

The players he helped especially should come together and do something for the man.

“The entire football fraternity must also remember Alhaji Sly Tetteh. He is a great loss to the nation. The core of the Black Stars you see today is his handiwork.

If he had not developed the programme for the development of players, our Black Stars wouldn’t have been where it is today”, he added.

Sulley Muntari, Asamoah Gyan, Kwadwo Asamoah, Micheal Essien, Derek Boateng, Rabiu Mohammed and Anthony Annan are all products of his development plan.

George Lamptey further called on the authorities and the players to show gratitude to what the man had done for the country in general, and the players in particular.

“There should be something special to remember the man. While Hearts and Kotoko were winning the league, he was developing talents”, he concluded.
