Black Princesses and Sea Lions defender, Blessing Agbomadzi has eulogized the current Ghana Football Association led by Kurt Okraku, who she believes will advance women’s football in the country.
Despite being in office for less than nine months, the administration of Kurt Edwin Simeon Okraku have made giant strides in women’s football with timely interventions aimed at projecting women’s football in a country which is slowly moving away from the status quo of ‘women don’t play football’.
Regardless of his efforts, the former Dreams FC Executive Chairman has come under some scrutiny especially in relation to the disbursement of the FIFA stimulus package worth $500,000.
However, Miss Blessing has chosen to focus on the positives instead of the negatives. In an interview with Kumasi-based Alpha Radio, she said:
“I will applaud the new FA boss for the good treatment during our stay in camp at Prampram while preparing for our Qualifiers,”
“He has not been long in office but looking at his gestures on women football I think he will help in improving women’s football in the country,” she concluded.
According to the defender her outfit has not considered a possible pay-cut despite the men’s team, Elmina Sharks taking a paycut.
“We the players of Sea Lions fc receives our salaries on time and I can tell you there is nothing like negotiating for pay cut at Sea Lions.”
