Abednego Tetteh considering retirement after ‘consistent’ Black Stars snub

Abednego Tetteh considering retirement after 'consistent' Black Stars snub

Ghanaian forward Abednego Tetteh is considering retirement from football after not getting an invitation to the Black Stars despite an incredible form last season.

Tetteh ended last season as the Ghana Premier League topscorer and was hoping to earn an invitation to the Black Stars.

The 32-year old is unhappy after former Bechem United striker Hafiz Wontah Konkoni and Medeama’s Jonathan Sowah were picked ahead of him despite his impressive performance last season.

Speaking on Fox FM in Kumasi, Abednego Tetteh formerly of Bechem United and Hearts of Oak disclosed that he is considering retirement from football after running out his contract with Bibiani Goldstars.

“I won the Goal King award but I am very sad. It is the vision of any footballer to do well and earn praises for his hard work but in my case it is not like that. I am very, very sad and I know many people are sad too. For a football nation like Ghana , the goal king of the league is consistently not given a national call-up but players that he overscored are invited to the national team,” Tetteh said on Fox FM on Monday.

“They first called a different striker (Hafiz Wontah of Bechem United) and then for the second time another player that I scored more goals than is called (Jonathan Sowah). What have I done wrong to the GFA people? ” he quized.

“Even look at the GFA awards, all the top scorers of the various leagues won the best player of that league but in my case I was not given the best player award despite being the top scorer of the league season. Have I offended anyone at the GFA? I really do not understand what is going on.

“Right now I am in the house, I am not playing for any club this season. I will not even play football again for now. It is better to stay in the house than doing myself and not be rewarded. They have started pre-season but I am in the house , I am not playing again for now.”
