Black Queens Resume Training

The Black Queens have returned to training days after staging a boycott due to unpaid bonuses.

Head coach Yusif Basigi says he persuaded the striking players to return to training ahead of the 2014 African Women Champions to be staged in Namibia.

“I have done my best to persuade them to get back to training. The management has also assured them that all what is owed them will be sorted out in a short while so it was necessary they returned to training so not to derail our training programs,” Basigi said.

Twenty-five (25) players were named by the Hasaacas coach and began training on 29 July.

The Black Queens are in Group B alongside South Africa, Cameroon and Algeria.

The 2014 African Women’s Championships will be played between 11-24 October 2014.

*Ghana Football Association Technical Director Francis Oti Akenteng has blamed agents for the massive player exodus in the Ghana Premier League.

Akenteng, who doubles as a CAF Instructor, says these agents convince promising to obscure leagues at the expense of Ghana top-flight.

The Ghana Premier League has lost more budding talents to foreign leagues to the detriment of the First Capital Plus Premier League.

“These fake agents are killing our local league. They influence the players with money and manage to lure them out depriving our league of the quality it deserves,” he said.

“Sometimes these agents lie to these young players only to dump them in areas where they will make no money thereby threatening their careers.

“It is about time footballers and their managers look out for these fake agents to protect the future of their players so that Ghana can have the full benefit from these players
