The Chairperson of the Ghana Women’s League Committee, Hillary Boateng, has bewailed about the impact coronavirus is having on female footballers because of the suspension and the lockdown that only lasted for three weeks.
Hillary Boateng was speaking on the challenges facing the female footballers during this period that football is halted. She disclosed that many of the players are not prepared for the resumption of the league since they are not allowed to train on their own.
She added that should the government give the green light for football to resume, it will be difficult for the Women’s League Committee to raise money for the clubs.
“I felt so sad when I was informed one of my ladies has been impregnated during the period of the lockdown. A player with very good promise, and it’s so worrying. I will plead with my female footballers not to allow themselves to be used and dumped.
“Even if we decide to play under closed doors, how can the Women’s League Committee raise money for the clubs, especially when players are not allowed to even train on their own?”. She said.
