Abednego Tetteh has called for the quick return of Ghana football

Hearts of Oak forward, Abednego Tetteh, has called on the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to quickly return football activities in the country pointing out that other African countries with much higher COVID-19 cases have already restarted their leagues.

The 29-year-old revealed this in an interview with Kumasi-based Hello FM saying that he believes the GFA has not done enough to convince the government to allow the sport to return. ”South Africa’s cases are more than Ghana. If I watch them and Tanzania playing football I became so sad. The FA should push hard for the resumption of football,”


Tetteh who spent a year with India side Aciesta Tiddim Road Athletic Union (TRAU) FC, joined the Phobians on a three-year deal back in March and is yet to feature for the club due to the cancellation of the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League (GPL) season.

Tetteh also spoke about the effect the long absence of the sport has had on him saying that he can’t wait to return to the pitch ”We have missed the game. We thought the break was going to be short. I’m surprised we have sat home for about eight months without playing football, this is unforgettable.”
