Ferwafa coy on new Tetteh contract

THE local football governing body (Ferwafa) is undecided on whether to extend Sellas Tetteh’s contract. The Amavubi coach’s two-year deal expires next June and with no tangible results to show during his tenure, it remains to be seen if Ferwafa will stick with the Ghanaian.

THE local football governing body (Ferwafa) is undecided on whether to extend Sellas Tetteh’s contract.

The Amavubi coach’s two-year deal expires next June and with no tangible results to show during his tenure, it remains to be seen if Ferwafa will stick with the Ghanaian.

Rwanda’s chances of qualifying for next year’s Africa Nations Cup are all but over after three defeats in their opening four qualifiers.

Last month’s 3-1 return leg defeat against Burundi was the final nail in the coffin. The loss meant that the wasps dropped back to the foot of Group H with three points and with games against Ivory Coast and Benin coming up, only a miracle would help Amavubi sneak through as one of three third best qualifiers from the eight groups.

Tetteh, who reportedly earns about Rwf9m a month, plus Rwf1.2m for a win and Rwf0.6m for a draw, is understood to be already plotting for CAN 2013.

However, Ferwafa CEO Jules Kalisa yesterday said that Tetteh’s contract renewal talks were not yet on the table.

“It’s too early to start discussing the matter. We will cross the bridge when we get there,” Kalisa said.

Meanwhile, Algeria is the latest country to officially declare their interest in hosting the 2013 Nations Cup.

The North African country joins South Africa in the race to host the competition which was originally scheduled to be held in Libya.

South Africa, hosts of the 2017 tournament, have already announced their intention to stage the event, should Libya’s civil conflict continue.

Next year’s Nations Cup will be co-hosted by Equatorial Guinea and Gabon while the 2015 edition will be staged in Morocco. The 2013 host will be decided in September.
