Adwoa Bayor, former African female footballer of the year has expressed delight in the appointment of Mercy Tagoe as the Deputy Coach of the Black Queens of Ghana.
In an interview with the GNA Sports, the former Black Queens captain said she is happy for Mercy Tagoe and she believe she would learn a lot from good and experienced Didi Dramani.
“I am happy with Mercy Tagoe’s appointment as assistant coach of the Black Queens, it is enough for the mean time, she is now getting the exposure as a coach and I know gradually she would be fully in charge.
“She played at the highest level as a footballer, she excelled as a referee for both women and men football but as a coach she needs to go through the ranks.
“I am happy that she’s going to assist Didi Dramani, it would aid her development as a female coach because Didi has vast experience, he has been in the system for long I believe Tagoe would learn a lot from him and perhaps replace him as the head coach in future.
“There are very few women who are into coaching and I think Tagoe’s appointment would encourage many others to take up the challenge.
“I have no problem with men coaching females because football was for the men in the first place, but most female players find difficulties in telling male coaches their problems and would rather want females in charge and I am happy for Mercy’s presence there.
“I want to become a coach in future, but I am not rushing for it, I am taking the courses for the meantime. My ambition is to become a coach, maybe in future who knows I could be in charge of the Black Queens”. Said Adwoa Bayor
