Former Ghana Under-20 coach Orlando Wellington says he is very proud of the team’s progress in the African Youth Championship qualifiers.
The ex Heart of Lions quit his post three months ago after strings of unimpressive results in friendly matches before the eliminators began.
The Black Satellites gave their 2013 finals qualification chances a boost by beating Morocco 4-1 last Sunday in the final round first leg tie.
Wellington told Sunyani-based Storm FM: “Am highly impressed and proud of the team’s performance so far because I talk to all the players before and after every game.
Even the coach (Maxwell Konadu) is a personal friend as we share a lot of ideas before games.
“There’s a cordial relationship between me and all the playing body and technical staff and I know they will surely qualify.”
Wellington was assistant coach for the 2009 Ghana U20 team which won conquered Africa and the World.
Two years later, he failed to qualify the team from the Group stage at the finals in South Africa when he was promoted as head coach.
