Black Queens head coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo believes her side has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
She made this revelation when the Black Queens Management Committee met with Ghana FA boss Kurt Okraku.
“COVID-19 has distracted the plans I had for the team, by now we should have been in a competition playing WAFU and AFCON qualifiers,” Tagoe-Quarcoo said.
”The pandemic has brought everything to a standstill but as a coach, you always need to be prepared at all times.”
The ex-Ghana international revealed her plan to keep her players in good shape.
“My assistants and I have formed an informative platform where we discuss how we can build the team and make it successful,” she added.
”We have training schedules for the players on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays although some of the players might want to train on Saturdays with the main training focus is on endurance and conditioning whiles guarding against injuries.”
Tagoe-Quarcoo is happy about the recoveries of all injured players during the suspension of all football activities due to coronavirus.
She said: “The only benefit derived from this pandemic period is that those that are injured will have ample time to recover while I also keep in touch with the doctor to see to their health.
”Currently, all the ladies who travelled to Turkey are aware of how competitive the team has become and want to retain their position by trying hard to keep up.
”I make them take videos while training, the technical team accumulates all the programme so that we make corrections.”
