Sellas Tetteh replaces Sarpong at Liberty

Date published: July 10, 2012

Sellas Tetteh will take-over as head coach of Liberty Professionals following the dismissal of JE Sarpong.

The former Rwanda boss was the club’s technical director after resigning as coach of the Amavubes.

Tetteh has spent his entire club coaching career with the Scientific Soccer Lads.

He led them to their best ever finish-third place in the 2003 Ghana Premier League. Tetteh became renowned after leading Ghana to win the 2009 FIFA Under-20 World Cup finals.


Coach JE Sarpong has confirmed his departure from Ghana Premier League side Liberty Professionals and insists he has no qualms with his dismissal.

The former Hearts of Oak trainer was shockingly shown the exit after he guided the side to place 8th  last season.

Officials of the capital-based side claim their current financial situation accounted for their decision to part ways with the veteran tactician.

He says  he is disappointed with his departure from the club.

“The Chairman called me and informed me that they were facing financial difficulties and so wanted me to leave,” Sarpong told

“I was not in Ghana when the late Sly Tetteh called me to come and help. The team was lying 14th on the table and we tried our best to place 8th.

“This year we put up some decent performances in the second round and managed to place 8th again. So I am really disappointed at the way things have gone. I am not bitter but I am sad.”
