Poor Management in Ghana Football – Mercy Tagoe

By Wilhelmina Oddoye

Mercy Tagoe, a Ghanaian female football player who currently plays for the Celtic Queens in India, said the biggest problem in Ghana football is poor management.

In an interview on ADOA TV’s Sports Xplosion, She said though Ghana is endowed with so many good football players, there is little to no opportunity to play.

Those who even get the opportunity to play do not receive a salary.

“Ghanaian female football players know how to play but it’s just our management that is poor. The Ghana Premier League is played because of the national team.

There is no need for Ghana Premier league if scouting of players to play for the National team is not done among local players”.

Miss Tagoe added that though football is now gaining ground in development in India, its current development is way ahead and surpasses Ghana’s in terms of investment, resources, management, player accommodations, and salary.

“I am very sure that if footballers are paid well in Ghana, no footballer will pack his/her things and go to Kotoka International Airport to play for a team in another country. And even if they do go to the airport, then they are going for a week or two vacations”

Mercy Tagoe in 2012 had the opportunity to play for the under 17 National Team.
She has so far scored 15 goals and has assisted 8 times throughout her football journey in Tanzania, Dubai, and India.

Therefore, she encouraged the Ghana government to invest more in football sports, especially in women’s football because the Black Queens were the first to qualify for the FIFA World Cup.
