Former Heartland ace Sellas Tetteh has quit as Sierra Leone coach ahead of this month’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers clash with Super Eagles in Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba.

The 63-year-old, who rose to prominence after leading Ghana to the 2009 FIFA U20 World Cup title, left his position he joined after seven months at the helm of affairs.

According to claims that Tetteh tendered in his resignation to the Sierra Leone Football Association President and it has been accepted by the Executive Committee.

The former Ghana assistant coach managed only one win in four games he was in charge in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers and the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifications, he lost twice and drew the other.

Tetteh’s resignation will be an untimely blow to Sierra Leone, who are preparing for their Africa Cup of Nations 2021 qualifying double-header against Nigeria on March 27 and 31.

The SLFA is expected to announce Tetteh’s replacement in the coming days.
