Veteran Ghanaian Coach, Coach Joseph Emmanuel Sarpong says lack of unity among the Local Organizing Committee for the 2018 Women’s Cup of Nations contributed hugely to the Black Queens’ poor performance at the tournament.
Answering a question posed to him on Angel TV’s sports show “On the Turf” over the weekend on the Black Queens failure to impress at the tourney, controversial J.E Sarpong observed that members of the LOC were not united and believes that really affected the whole organization and performance of the home team.
“How many of them identified themselves with the public, we never saw them, yet there were experienced men among them who could have helped. However, they left everything on Freda Prempeh, making her to do everything, including becoming the PRO of the LOC which didn’t help, and it affected the performance of the entire team”, he said.
He further indicated that the Local Organizing Committee needs to go back and review everything and correct their mistakes, because the future is bright for Ghana.
The 2018 Total CAF African Women’s Cup of Nation came to an end on Saturday, December 1st when Nigeria defied plucky South Africa 4-3 on penalties to defend their Africa Women’s Cup of Nations title at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Bayana Bayana’s free-scoring forward Chrestinah Thembi Kgatlana was adjudged the Woman of the Tournament.
