 The Ghana FA has chalked up a first by appointing ex-player Mercy Tagoe as an assistant coach for the women’s senior national side.

Tagoe, an ex-Ghana defender and retired referee, has been contracted to deputise for new Black Queens head coach Mas-Ud Dramani.

She becomes the first female trainer to be appointed to any of the country’s national teams.

Speaking at the launch of this year’s Women’s FA Cup in Accra, vice president of the Ghana Football Association bemoaned the low number of women in the management of football.

“What is missing in this country [Ghana] is that we don’t see women running football. [Even] in the field of women football, it is still dominated by men – same for the technical and management teams appointed by the FA,” he noted.

Afriyie then announced the appointment of Mercy Tagoe, adding the GFA is doing its best to encourage women’s participation in all aspects of the sport.

“For the first time in the history of Ghana football, a former player of the Black Queens, Fifa referee and now a coach is going to occupy the second highest position in the technical team and I’m referring to madam Mercy Tagoe. She has been appointed the assistant coach of the Black Queens.

”We need to help develop and put one of our own there,” he added.
