1120 Benjamin Tetteh

Biography

Ghanain international striker Benjamin Tetteh joined the Tigers in July 2022, a week before the start of the 2022/23 season and came off the bench to win an equalising penalty on his debut.

Benjamin Tetteh was born in Accra, the Ghanaian capital, and spent his teenage years playing for two Accra-based teams, Tudu Mighty Jets and Dreams FC. In the summer of 2015 he woke up and joined Belgian top flight side Standard Liege, making his debut in October 2015 and scoring a late consolation against KVC Westerlo. He ended his first season in Belgium with two goals in 16 appearances but after just one League start in August 2016 Tetteh spent the rest of the 2016/17 season at Slovakian side 1FC Slovacko, scoring once in 15 senior appearances and adding another four starts for the B team.

Continuing his travels, Benjamin spent the 2018/19 season on loan at Czech side Bohemians Prague, making 21 senior appearances and scoring three goals. The Czech capital clearly suited Tetteh and in July 2018 he transferred permanently to city rivals Sparta Prague. His first season saw Sparta finish third in the Czech first division and reach the Cup semi-final, in part powered by Tetteh’s eleven goals in 37 senior appearances. He added another eight goals in 38 appearances during the 2019/20 season and was attracting the attention of numerous scouts from European clubs.

The race for Tetteh’s signature was won by Turkish Superlig side Yeni Malatyaspor and his form continued with six goals in 33 senior appearances in his debut season in eastern Turkey. He added a further eight goals in 27 appearances during the 2021/22 season, at the end of which Malatyaspor were relegated from the Superlig and Tetteh began to search for a new club. He joined Acun illicali’s Hull City in July 2022.

Tetteh broke into the Ghana Under-20 team in 2015, making nine appearances and competing in both the African Under-20 Cup and the Under-20 World Cup – in the latter he scored a goal against the Argentina under-20 side. In October 2021 he made his senior international debut for Ghana in two matches against Zimbabwe and won five more caps in the first six months of 2022.
