Former Bibiani Goldstars striker Abednego Tetteh has expressed frustration over his award for emerging as top scorer in last season’s Ghana Premier League, which he disclosed was a GH¢5,000 voucher from the Ghana Football Association to visit a dentist.

The striker says he is highly disappointed in the GFA, describing the gesture as offensive and unfair.

“The GFA gave me a GH¢5,000 voucher to visit a dentist as my GPL goal king prize. I won’t lie, I’m really hurt,” he said, as quoted by

“How can you give me GH¢5,000 to go to a dentist just to wash my mouth, which to me is very disrespectful,” he added.

Tetteh previously played for Hearts of Oak and Bechem United, secured two goals for King Faisal and an additional 16 for GoldStars after joining the team mid-season, ultimately grabbing the top scorer award.

He further indicated that this show of disrespect has informed his decision to distance himself from the Ghana Premier League.  

“I had the opportunity to renew my contract with Bibiani Gold Stars but because of what I have been through I turned it down. I don’t want to win the GPL goal king and get disrespected like this again. So I rather stay away from the GPL, not football entirely. How much is pepsodent?

“Why do you have to tell me to brush my teeth for GH¢5,000? The best referee received a car and the best player received GH¢20,000 and a Television and I being the top scorer would have appreciated it if they gave me GH¢10 airtime rather than the GH¢5,000 voucher,” he lamented.
