Chairperson of Ghana’s Women’s Premier League Committee has expressed sadness as she disclosed that a promising female footballer has gotten pregnant, during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.
Hillary Boateng said due to the lockdown, the Ghana Premier League, FA Cup and Women’s Premier League have all been suspended.
She said during an interview with Accra-based Adom FM that reports that got to her say a promising female footballer is now pregnant.
I felt so sad when I was told one of my girls has been impregnated during the lockdown period, a player very good and promising, and it’s so worrying.
“I will plead with my female footballers not to allow themselves to be used and dumped.
“The women’s league had a very good first round, it was very exciting, looking at the Southern and Northern sectors. It is even difficult to find clubs who will be relegated and who will not. It will be a huge disappointment.
“Therefore if we are asked to hold on on the hype and momentum built until next season, it will mean resuming all [efforts] over again.
“Clubs who have worked hard and are first on their league tables have to start all over again. There will be a lot of disappointing effects on everybody.”Photo Credit: Twitter
