Ghanaian Football striker  Abednego Tetteh has confirmed temporarily hanging up his boots due to the recent snubs by the technical team of the Black Stars.

The player considers himself a national team product after his successful season in the just ended BetPawa Premier League.

The player was crowned the top scorer of the 2022/23 BetPawa Premier League. He had also recently won the NASCO player of the month for May/June this year.

The former Hearts of Oak and Bechem United striker, Abednego Tetteh scored 18 goals last season, with two for King Faisal and 16 for Bibiani Gold Stars after joining halfway through the season.

Comparatively, the players’ camp think Tetteh had a better season than Medeama striker, Jonathan Sowah, who has been handed a call up to the national team during this international break. Sowah scored a whooping 12 goals in 18 games to help his team clinch the bet Pawa premier league title.

In his interview on Fox FM, Tetteh shared his frustration, saying,

“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.”

He also questioned the football governing body in Ghana, ( Ghana Football Association, GFA) in failing to give him a call to join the national team.

“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 (Jonathan Sowah). What have I done wrong to the GFA people?”

Tetteh finally made the decision to quit football in the meantime, stating he did not feel adequately rewarded for his achievements.

“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.”
