Abednego Tetteh, a former forward for the Bibiani Gold Stars, claims that the Togolese top flight is where he would rather play than the Ghana Premier League.
Tetteh caused a stir the past 48 hours after criticizing the Ghana Football Association for unfair treatment at the Ghana Football Association Awards on September 9 in Accra.
After a challenging first round with the relegated King Faisal Football Club, Abednego Tetteh joined the Gold Stars halfway through the second round. He finished the 2022–23 season with 18 goals in 22 games, earning him the title of top scorer in the Ghana Premier League.
When Tetteh won the top scorer award and received an airtime voucher for GH10 and a shopping voucher for GH5,000 to go to the dentist, he claimed the FA treated him disrespectfully.
He claimed that this “disrespect” motivated him to forego playing for a Ghanaian club in favour of looking for better opportunities, even in Togo.
In a Happy FM Sports interview, the former Hearts of Oak player declared, “Even if it is Togo, I am going.” We have been in for a long time, and it’s been a long time since the Premier League commenced.
The Black Stars probably contact every player who wins the league to explain why he deserves to be considered among the best in our league. But when it was my turn, I was informed that Hafiz Konkoni was already on their agenda.
As a player, all I can do is wish the team the best, he continued. “When they call up the next Black Stars squad, they will make sure they hand the call-up to the top scorer,” he said.
Abednego Tetteh is reportedly close to signing with an Albanian club, according to reports.
