Ghana’s Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah will meet crocked Black Princesses attacker Sandra Owusu Ansah in a bid to find a solution to an injury crisis which threatens her budding career.
The former FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup star suffered the career-threatening injury while on international duty five years ago.
The hugely talented attacker has reportedly grappled with finances to undergo a surgery to correct the defect which has left her in the treatment room for the past five years.
News of her current predicament has sparked widespread outrage, drawing the attention of the country’s sports minister to act.
She is expected to travel from her base in Kumasi to the Ghanaian capital, Accra on the invitation of the sports minister.
Despite suffering the knee injury during the 2014 FIFA U-17 women’s World Cup in Costa Rica, she played through the pain barrier to feature for the Black Maidens at the 2016 FIFA World Cup in Jordan.
Amid the threat on her career, she displayed her immense commitment to the West African nation to captain the country’s Under-20 female team at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in France.
While team doctor Kate Boachie has denied claims of neglect, the youngster has been left in the treatment room as she needs funds to undergo full scale operation.
A grapevine source within the corridors of the sports ministry has revealed that the sector minister will meet the national star tomorrow over a possible release of the needed funds for her surgery.
There is a tall list of other players who got injured whilst on national duty who need equal attention such as Rafia Kulchie Alhassan, Ama Bennie Appiah, Alberta Asante, Pearl Boamah, Mary Entoah among others.
