“As we fraternise, we must also share ideas on how we can move African football in the right direction by learning from the experience of Alhaji Sly Tetteh, who made so much impact on the game in his involvement at different levels.

“In the true spirit of Alhaji Sly Tetteh, I am operating an open door policy, engaging people on their ideas and plans to develop and make the game better”

Dr.Ahmad Ahmad, who replaced Issa Hayatou last March, recalled his maiden contact with the Liberty Professionals owner, revealing that his relationship with Sly Tetteh dated back many years, and will never forget his humility and generosity of the man who helped raise great players like Michael Essien, Asamoah Gyan, Sulley Muntari and Kwadwo Asamoah.
