Former Asante Kotoko manager Mas-ud Didi Dramani has been appointed as interim head coach of Ghana U-20 team following the departure of Sellas Tetteh, who led the outfit to the 2015 World Youth Championship in New Zealand after winning the tournament in 2009.
Tetteh opted not to continue as the Black Satellites coach and has been appointed as board member of premier league side Liberty Professionals.
“The head coach chosen for the Black Satellites is Didi Dramani,” a source at the GFA revealed to Sports5050.
“The GFA reached an agreement with Dramani to lead the first team until a permanent manager is appointed in the future. Since he’s not in the country, he will have the opportunity to meet the 30 players called up by the federation last week when he returns.”
Dramani led Kotoko to two league titles and one FA Cup trophy between 2012 and 2014. He also guided the country’s Black Maidens to clinch bronze at the 2012 Fifa World Under-17 Women’s Championship in Azerbaijan.
Ghana has been drawn bye in the 2017 African Youth Champions qualifiers and will face the winner between Ethiopia and Somalia.
Sports5050 understands that Dramani is currently in Zanziba as part of Caf’s technical team exposing local coaches to modern-day running of football.
