Female Football Coach Mavis Appiah Making The Headlines in Ghana (Ghana)
Women?s football has been on the rise all around the world and it is quite evident in the increased coverage of women?s matches and competitions.
The women?s UEFA Champions League organised in Europe should be given more attention while the Confederation of African Football (CAF), under new President Ahmad Ahmad must take steps towards organising such competitions to add to the existence of the Women?s African Nations Cup.
In Ghana, women?s football is not that strongly pushed and their game is in need of a huge injection. The GFA must work harder to promote and develop the female game as many females are interested but do not know how to join.
But in all this, some women are making huge strides in making things better.
25 year-old Mavis Anane Appiah, head coach of lower league side DC United in Brong Ahafo Region, is a shining light for women in football in Ghana.
It sounds really refreshing and she is bent on making her mark in Ghana.
She is well-educated too and she is prepared for the rough-and-tumble world of coach.
She is of the 2016 graduating class at the University of Education, Winneba. BSc Education. Coaching Licence C.
She says in the ideal situation, she should not be making the headlines because female coaches have become part of football.
