Ishmael Yartey sent some elders to apologise to coach Sellas Tetteh two years after the Ghana winger accused the trainer of taking bribes to select players to the Black Satellites, it has been revealed.
In an utmost show of compassion, the U20 World Cup winning coach says he will use Yartey in future if he can help him win his matches.
The France-based midfielder sensationally accused Tetteh of taking bribes when the Sochaux player when dropped from Ghana U20 team for the 2009 U20 World Cup.
In a blistering attack, Yartey claimed that some of the players in the team were included because they had powerful connections to the coach.
Tetteh said there is no truth in the accusations from “a frustrated player who felt he had to make the team and he couldn’t and he went destroying the hand that fed him,” while revealing that the player sent some elders to apologise to him.
Despite these accusations, Tetteh went on to win the U20 World Cup with the players Yartey felt were not selected on merit.
But coach Tetteh says he will call Yartey to his team again in future work if he will help the side to win their matches.
When asked if he would like to work with the repentant midfielder again, the coach responded that “If he would win for me, why should I refuse?”
Tetteh guided Ghana U20 team to win the Africa Youth Championship silver medal in Algeria last week.
