Black Satellites coach Sellas Tetteh says he is ready to step down if the Ghana Football Association decides to shake up the technical team.
The 2009 FIFA U20 World Cup winning coach failed to meet his self-imposed target of a semi-final berth at this year’s tournament in New Zealand after exiting at the round of 16 stage.
“I am here to serve my country, if authorities say I should serve my country, I will,” Tetteh told Joy Sports.
Ghana had finished top of Group A after wins against Argentina and Panama and a draw with Austria, but were outclassed 3-0 by Mali, who are currently in the semis.
“If they say I should stay, what is the problem?”
There’ve been calls for Tetteh’s head since the ignominous exit. But the Liberty Professionals technical director says he’s calm and simply awaiting the FA’s verdict.
“I have got the opportunity to serve my nation and if the opportunity comes and they say come and serve, who am I? I will serve. I am there to serve. Several coaches in this country have not got the opportunity to serve their nation.”
Possible candidates touted to replace Tetteh include current Inter Allies boss Paa Kwasi Fabin and former Kotoko manager Masud Didi Dramani.
