Sellas Tetteh InterviewSellas Tetteh aka Borbor

Black Satellites goalkeeper, Lawrence Ati, is unhappy about attempts to single out Coach Sellas Tetteh aka Borbor for the failure of the team to perform at the last U-20 World Cup in New Zealand.

He has, therefore, kicked against suggestions that the team’s head coach be fired.

Tetteh has come under immense pressure after failing to reach his own semi- final target at the World Cup.

Ghana crashed out of the tournament at the 1/16th stage against West African rivals, Mali much to the disappointment of Ghanaians.

And in the aftermath of the defeat there have been calls for the head of the man who had in the past presided over Ghana’s and Africa’s only World Cup success at the U-20 level.

But goalkeeper Lawrence Ati who emerged as one of the revelations from the Ghana team says Tetteh must stay on to continue with his good work.

“For me he is a good coach so I don’t think he should be sacked.

He has done a lot of good things for the team and if Ghana want’s to continue reaping results from youth development, then he should be allowed to play a key role”, he added.
