Black Queens winger Alberta Asante believes having CAF Women’s Champions League is long overdue.
The Black Queens attacker has lauded the Confederation of African Football for the initiative while highlighting how beneficial it will be for the women’s game.
CAF announced via Zoom conference yesterday that it would launch a new Women’s Champions League in 2021, as part of measures to boost the development of football on the continent.
In an exclusive interview with www.nbsportslive.com Asante said: “It’s a good idea and I’m so happy about it, I’m just looking forward to it, I just hope everything will go on well so we can also play in the maiden edition.
”It just feels so good knowing that women’s champions League is being considered, we’ve been watching the GPL clubs go but finally it’s our turn.”
”We have been limited with competitions as clubs but then we only get to play with clubs playing in Ghana alone is just not enough, Accra, Takoradi and Techiman, but now we can move to different countries like Namibia, Nigeria and the likes with the that we can get the exposure women’s football deserves.
Asante, who has been on the injury list for a year now, is looking forward to the start of next season.
