One of Ghana’s most celebrated youth coach Silas ‘Borbor’ Tetteh is reportedly in a critical health condition.

According to sources he has been battling with an undisclosed illness for quite a while now.

From what we have gathered so far, he is in good hands now and receiving the appropriate treatment.

Coach Tetteh masterminded the defeat of mighty Brazil at the 2009 U-20 FIFA World cup in Egypt.

His profile after that historic win shot through the roof. He had gigs in quite a few African countries such as Rwanda and Sierra Leone where he took charge of their senior national teams.

The 66-year-old celebrated coach resigned from his position as interim coach for the Sierra Leonian senior national team and returned to Ghana to serve as head coach for his beloved Ghana Premier League side Liberty Professionals.

He has been in that position since 2020 and hasn’t announced any intentions of resigning from that post since he became ill.
