The chairperson of the Ghana women’s Premier League committee, Madam Hillary Boaten has complained about the negative effects of COVID-19 as many female footballers seem vulnerable.
Football activities in Ghana were suspended in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the country as Ghana clocks close to 6000 cases of COVID-19.
The chairperson made it clear that the female clubs have not put themselves in a position that will enable them start their league.
She also stressed on the fact that female footballers in her league lack basic equipment to perform self training as this will go a long way to affect the future of female footballers.
“I felt so sad when I was told one of my girls has been impregnated during the lockdown period a player with very good promise and its so worrying. I will plead with my female footballers not to allow themselves to be used and dump” she told Adom FM’s Alex Kobina Stonne.
Madame Boeteng also lamented on the ability of the female clubs to maintain the safety protocols even if the government lifts the ban on public gathering.
” Even if we decide to play under closed doors, how can the women’s league committee raise money for clubs especially when players are not allowed to even train on their own”, she concluded.
June 30th has been set for football resumption in Ghana but the GFA is still in talks with the government to see how the set date might be possible.
