Michael Tetteh goes Awol at Wanderers
Mighty Wanderers striker Michael Tetteh has gone Absent Without Leave (Awol) for more than two weeks.
The Ghanaian has not been reporting for duties due to unspecified reasons.
But reports suggest Tetteh was unhappy with unpaid dues as the club is struggling financially following Be Forward Limited’s sponsorship withdrawal.
A well-placed source at Wanderers confirmed that the whereabouts of the Ghanaian striker were not known.
“It is now two weeks since he stopped training with the team. We do not know what happened,” said the source.
Tetteh has not featured for Wanderers since the TNM Super League resumed in March after it was suspended in January due to the surge in Covid cases.
Reports suggest that the Ghanaian striker sneaked out of the country to try his luck at one of the South African clubs.
Wanderers General Secretary Fadweck Matemba Tuesday asked for more time before he could comment on the matter.
Tetteh joined Wanderers alongside Nigerian defender Yinusa Sherriff from Silver Strikers on a free transfer after they were deemed surplus to requirements before the start of the season.
Despite being one of the prolific strikers in domestic football, Tetteh has struggled to adapt at Wanderers.
He is yet to score a competitive goal for the Lali Lubani outfit. He also faces stiff competition as the Nomads have plenty of options upfront namely Vincent Nyangulu, Babatunde Adepoju, Peter Wadabwa and Mischek Botomani.
Adepoju is the club’s top goal-scorer, having scored five goals in this campaign.
