Chairperson of the Ghana Women’s Premier League Committee, Hillary Boateng has bemoan the impact of Coronavirus on women football.
Following a national ban on all public gatherings as part of the measures adopted by the government to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, Ghana football leagues were suspended on March 16, 2020
During this period of inactivity, footballers are being forced to stay home doing nothing either than trying to stay fit for when football resumes.
Speaking in an interview with Asempa FM, Hillary Boateng revealed some of the negative impact the coronavirus pandemic has has on female footballers.
“I felt so sad when I was told one of my girls has been impregnated during the lockdown period. She is a player who is very good and has a promising career so its very worrying,” Boateng told Adom FM.
“I will plead with my female footballers not to allow themselves to be used and dumped.”
She went on to express her disappointment on the lack of funds for the Women’s league, a thing which is a problem with the Men’s league as well.
“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 added.
The Ghana Football Association has announced that it will make a decision on the fate on the league on June 30.
