Ex-Black Queens forward, Agnes Aduako has taken a swipe at the technical know-how of Ghanaian coaches in terms of nurturing talents.
The recent poor run of results produced by Ghana at all levels of women football is no surprise for the former goal scoring sensation, outlining a number of factors which has caused the once dominant side in Africa to go down the pecking order.
Aduako, claims the reason for the sharp decline in women’s football in Ghana is down to the rapid transition of players from the grassroots level to the national teams.
“If you juxtapose our senior national team (Black Queens) with the rest on the continent, our performance has really declined. Because the level of inexperience churned from the grassroots to the national team is huge.
She also argued that, if our coaches could upgrade their technical know-how in improving the quality of talents in the country, Ghana would have a wider pool of players to select from.
“Also, the technical acumen of our coaches, is low. Because there are some players who will require guidance (nurturing) before they can give off their best.
“But the selection criteria used for our national team is down to only the best of talents, so no one receives further tuition at the national level.” She told NB Sports
Ghana has performed abysmally in recent women’s competitions, and the failure of the country to qualify for this year’s Women’s World Cup despite hosting the AWCON encapsulates the assertion of the Fabulous Ladies captain.
