Tetteh tipped for vacant Meteors Job

The former Liberty Professionals coach resigned as Rwanda’s gaffer after the 5-0 loss to Cote D'Ivoire, which left Rwanda bottom of Africa Cup of Nations qualifying Group H with only three points.

Sources close to the Ghana Football Association have suggested that Silas is being seriously considered for the Under-23 job to continue with the development process after he successfully led the Black Satellites to win the World Cup trophy in 2009 in Egypt.

During his short stint, Tetteh managed to qualify Rwanda to the Africa Nations Championships (CHAN) in Sudan early this year, and also guided the Amavubi's to the quarterfinals of the CECAFA Challenge Cup held in Tanzania last year, but they got one hammering after the other in the 2012 Nations Cup qualifying, forcing him out.

Tetteh had his first stint with the junior side in 1999, playing the role of an assistant coach to Cecil Jones Attuquayefio at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in New Zealand, where Ghana picked up bronze.

In 2002, he took charge of the Black Starlets team, but Ghana failed to qualify for the African Junior Championship. And in 2009, led the Under-20s to win the World Championships in Egypt.

The Black Meteors have struggled lately after failing to qualify for the Olympics under David Duncan. They also lost their first game at the All Africa Games with Kwesi Appiah, who is currently the caretaker boss who expected to return to his Black Stars assistant job after the competition in Maputo.
