Boateng Very Angry As Promising Ghanaian Footballer Falls Pregnant

Ghana Women’s Premier League Committee chairperson Hillary Boateng has bemoaned the effect of Covid-19 on the women’s game, revealing an unnamed player “has been impregnated” during a recent lockdown restriction in the West African nation.

Football activities ground to a halt since mid-March following a national ban on all public gatherings, including religious and sporting activities, as part of measures to curb the spread of the deadly disease. Ghana’s two biggest cities Accra and Kumasi were under lockdown for three weeks between March 30 and April 20.

The women’s Premier League and FA Cup competitions are among the championships to have been consequently halted.

“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,” Boateng told Adom FM.

“I will plead with my female footballers not to allow themselves to be used and dumped.”

Presently, Ghana’s football fraternity is divided on the immediate future of the sport in the country.

While a group wants the 2019-20 season cancelled altogether, another section wants football to return as soon as possible, albeit under strict safety protocols like playing matches behind closed doors.

“Even if we decide to play behind 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?” Boateng quizzed.
