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.
Barcelona’s final push to sign Lautaro Martinez
Barcelona are preparing a final bid to sign Lautaro Martinez from Inter.
Ronald Koeman knows he needs to find a replacement for Luis Suarez, who is expected to leave for Juventus.
Memphis Depay’s name has been linked with a move to the Camp Nou in recent days, but Lautaro is Barcelona’s main priority.
According to Goal, the Catalan club have decided to make one last push to sign the Argentine this summer.
Lautaro has a 65 million euro release clause at Inter, but Barcelona can’t afford to pay that amount of money at the moment.
As a result, the Blaugrana are looking to enter talks with Inter, although the Italian club have insisted that Lautaro is not for sale.
Barcelona have already agreed personal terms with the 23-year-old, who will earn lot less than Suarez did at the Camp Nou.
Lewandowski scores again: Bayern striker named Germany’s player of the year
Robert Lewandowski landed Germany’s Footballer of the Year prize on Sunday as reward for his extraordinary season with Bayern Munich.
The award, voted for by leading journalists in conjunction with Kicker magazine, went to Lewandowski by a resounding margin.
He received 276 votes and Bayern completed a 1-2-3 in the awards as Thomas Muller pulled 54 votes to finish second, five votes ahead of Joshua Kimmich.
Bayern conquered all challenges before them in 2019-20, winning a domestic Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal double before going on to triumph in the Champions League, beating Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in the final.
Lewandowski, 32, scored 55 goals across the season and becomes the first non-German winner of the award since Kevin De Bruyne took the honour in 2015 at the end of the Belgium midfielder’s Wolfsburg stay.
The Poland international told Kicker: “I’m very proud of it. All the more because the expectations of me are getting higher and higher and I try to exceed them every year.
“The level is so high that 25 goals per season is considered normal in the Bundesliga. I worked hard for my performance and that of the entire team, which then played superbly, both nationally and internationally.”
