Liberia’s central defender, Teah Dennis, has reportedly gone missing while attending his trial out with DC United in Washington D.C, the United States of America. The Barrack Young Controller (BYC) defender went to the United States for six-month trial with the Major League Soccer club on May 3rd this year; he reportedly left the team’s hotel without notification.
Player Dennis, who trained with DC United for two days, could not be located. However, the Liberian Embassy in Washington D.C has filed a missing person report to the US authorities.
BYC President Sekou Konneh expressed deep disappointment about Teah Dennis’ action, regretting that they are convinced that the player has narrowed his career opportunity. “It will seriously restrict the chances of his young colleagues who might have similar opportunities awaiting them”, he noted”
The president noted the good relationship between the BVC, through Liberia FA and D.C United to promote the talents of more Liberian players to professional Football Clubs worldwide for subsequent career opportunities.
He said Teah’s action may have negative consequences on such opportunity they’ve all worked assiduously to achieve for Liberian footballers. Information received from authorities of the BYC suggests that player Dennis left his passport with Mr. Musa Shannon in the hotel before leaving the sight of his host.
Mr. Shannon, Vice President of the FA, who accompanied Teah Dennis to the US from the LFA, led the search to find him, but no avail. D.C United is an American professional soccer club based in Washington D.C, which competes in the major league soccer.
