“PFAG has offered to donate our share of the Covid-19 to Women football,” he said.
“We can choose to keep the money to run our association but we have thought through that Women football needs insurance package so we have donated our share to help the Women footballers get an insurance package.
“PFAG is providing insurance package for the male footballers in the elite division so want the same thing for the female footballers. We are footing the insurance bill for the male footballers for the next two years.
“We want all other associations to join to help raise the standard of the Ghana Premier League because when we are able to take good care of our players, they will stay in the league which will help us get more sponsors,” he added.
