Head coach of Ghana’s Black Princesses has lauded government’s decision to allow the team return to training ahead of their World cup qualifiers later this year.
President Akufo-Addo in his address to the nation on Sunday on measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus, eased restrictions on football activities for the first time since March, allowing the two national teams to begin training by adhering to the safety protocols.
Speaking to the communications team of the GFA, Coach Basigi expressed his delight at the decision.
“I am elated that finally the President, His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo has eased the restrictions for us to begin camping.
“During the lockdown, I engaged the players individually to monitor their training via video recordings just to make sure their endurance level is not compromised.
“Now that we are to resume camping, I believe at least those exercises will help boost the teamwork quickly.”
