CAF mourns Tetteh, owner one of the best football academy in Ghana which produced Essien
CAF President Issa Hayatou on behalf of the African football family has expressed condolences to the Ghana Football Association, and Liberty Professionals F/C on the death of renowned administrator, Ibrahim Sly Tetteh.
Tetteh passed away on Saturday (September 3) at a hospital in Cape Coast in the Central Region of Ghana, and will be laid rest on Sunday in Accra.
“It’s a big loss to African football especially grassroots football considering his academies in other African countries,” Hayatou said.
Tetteh was also a member of the Organising Committee of the African Futsal Championship. The ex-footballer was the founder of Liberty Professionals F/C, the club that has nurtured some of the finest Ghanaian football exports to Europe.
Amongst them are Michael Essien (Chelsea), Asamoah Gyan (Sunderland), Sulley Muntari (Inter Milan), John Paintsil (Leicester City), Kwadwo Asamoah (Udinese) and Derek Boateng (Dnipro FC), all current members of the Black Stars.
He also runs three football academies in Ghana, Togo and Kenya, which has churned out scores of young players for the various national teams of the three countries. As a footballer, Tetteh won the WAFU Cup with Sekondi Hasaacas in 1982.
