Coach Sellas Tetteh - Still with Tamale City FC

Ghana's U-20 World Cup winning coach, Sellas Tetteh has refuted reports of his move to Premier League side Bechem United.

Earlier this week, news broke that the veteran coach had initiated talks with leadership of the club and was hoping to sign a contract soon to replace Osei Wire as the new head coach.

However, speaking to Kumasi-based Otec FM on Thursday, the former Liberty Professionals trainer noted there was no iota of truth in the report tagging it as baseless.

“It is never true that I have signed for or in talks with Bechem United. I was called by Agama [owner of Bechem United], who is a good friend of mine, to help manage their U-17 team for a tournament in the USA. But as it stands now, I am in Tamale preforming my duties as the head coach for Tamale City FC,” he insisted.

The U-17 side of the club will represent Ghana and West Africa for the first time at the prestigious Dr. Pepper Dallas Cup scheduled for April 14 to 21 in Texas, USA. 

The trip by the Ghanaians was spearheaded by Robert Osei Mensah, a US soccer agent and CEO of Ghamerico Management Limited.

They will face stiff competition from some European and American clubs at the tournament. English Premier League side Arsenal FC recently confirm their participation at this year’s event.

Meanwhile, Bechem United have begun preparations for the upcoming GFA Normalisation Committee's Special Competition for Premier and Division One League clubs.
