Mercy Tagoe debunks pregnancy rumors about her female players
Head coach of the female national team, the Black Queens, Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo has debunk suggestions that some of her players are pregnant.
This week numerous widespread reports suggested that some players of female national setup were pregnant following the suspension of contact sports by a Presidential directive as far back as March 15, of which football was included.
However, the headcoach, who is in constant communication with her players due to the inactivity of the women’s league said her girls were matured enough to know right from wrong.
According to her some of them were married, as such if they were pregnant, it shouldn’t call for condemnation.
“No pregnancy has been recorded so far, the players are matured enough and some have gone through the ranks of the national teams and they know better. Some are married and if it happens that’s fair,” she told Happy FM.
The National Women’s League was about to enter its second phase of matches before the government halted sporting related activities due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in the country.
It remains to be seen when football will return as other sports have been given the green light to start training regimes in efforts to easing of lockdown rules by government.
Mercy Tagoe was named substantive coach of the Black Queens in January after leading the team to third place at the WAFU Cup of Nations.
