Ghana football mourns Sly Tetteh

Filed under: Sports |

The Ghana Football Association and the football family are mourning the passing of Liberty Professionals President, Alhaji Ibrahim Sly Tetteh who died Saturday.

He was pronounced dead on arrival at a hospital in Cape Coast where he had been rushed after he collapsed during a morning game.

After succeeding in winning the West African Football Union (WAFU) competition in 1982 as a player with former premier side, Sekondi Hasaacas, Sly Tetteh became a vastly respected football administrator not only at home, but also within the sub region.
