With talks still ongoing regarding the return of sporting activities, particularly football in Ghana, Chairperson of the Ghana Women’s Football Committee Hillary Boateng has made some interesting revelations on Accra-based Asempa FM.
Hillary Boateng was speaking on challenges facing the women’s league due to the outbreak of the coronavirus in the country.
The chairperson wasn’t particularly enthused about the resumption of the Ghana Women’s league should Government give the green light for sporting activities to return.
She maintained that most of the female footballers are not prepared for the league to return while her committee will also struggle to raise funds 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”, She revealed.
“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”.
The HR consultant is chairperson of the seven-member Women’s League Committee of the Ghana Football Association.
