Sumani Basirudeen: Northern Ladies coach affected by coronavirus

Northern Ladies head coach Sumani Basirudeen says he will have to start from scratch when competitive fixtures resume in the country.

Basirudeen believes the break caused by the coronavirus pandemic will affect the sharpness of his squad.

He told Ejisu-based Aben FM: ”Training the men is different from the women, sometimes when you train the men they adopt faster than the women, so I will say the pandemic break has affected us seriously because some of the ladies reached their developmental stage but we would have to start everything again.”

In the interim, Basirudeen and his backroom staff have given training programmes to the player to boost their fitness.

“They have stayed home for about four months now. I have given my team some personal training to do but sometimes they don’t take training serious how much more doing it individually.

”We are financially down because some of the ladies are still in camp.”
