GHANAIAN born Coach Sellas Tetteh resigned as the head coach of Rwanda national football team, Amavubi yesterday in Kigali.
In his resignation letter, Tetteh said, “I have resigned as Amavubi coach because of personal reasons,”
“I thank the federation, Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture and all for their support during my tenure,” added Tetteh.
Rwanda Football Federation (Ferwafa) president, Brig. Gen. Jean Bosco Kazura, told Times Sport last evening that the search for Tetteh replacement had started.
Tetteh who won the Fifa U-20 world cup tile with Ghana U-20 national team was a few months to the end of his two-year contract.
In his reign, Tetteh qualified Rwanda to the second edition of Africa Nations’ Championship (CHAN) in Khartoum Sudan where the wasps bowed out of the competition in the preliminary round.
Rwanda failed to progress past the quarter final of the Cecafa Challenge Cup after a 1-0 loss to Tanzania last December.
In the qualification campaign to the 2012 Africa Nations’ Cup, his services have failed to yield any results for Amavubi. Rwanda under Tetteh suffered one of their heaviest defeats in the history of the country’s football.
This past weekend, Cote d’Ivoire demolished Rwanda 5-0 with a double from Bony Wilfred, and a goal each from Chelsea midfielder Solomon Kalou, Yakonan Didier and Yoassi Gervinho scoring for the Elephants.
The 0-5 loss went into the history of Rwandan football as the fourth biggest defeat of all time.
Other major defeats include the 1976's 0-5 loss to Cameroon, 1983's 0-5 loss to Tunisia and the 1999's 0-5 loss to neighbors Uganda.
The result left Rwanda struggling bottom of Group H with three points in five matches played.
