The Ghana FA has decided to rescue the embarrassed and stranded female national football team at the M-Plaza Hotel in Accra.
The Kwesi Nyantakyi-led administration is now footing the hotel bills of the Black Queens after the Ministry of Sports asked officials of the hospitality outfit to throw them out for overstaying in protest of their winning bonuses.
Each player of the Black Queens is demanding $5000 for winning gold at the All Africa Games, but the ministry insists it can only afford $2000 which has resulted in a standoff between the playing body and officials.
Ministry officials ordered the hotel to throw the players out, but the football governing body went to their rescue to avoid further embarrassment.
Meanwhile, the Black Queens have served notice they will quit playing for Ghana after their bonus row with government is finally settled.
Black Queens captain Mercy Myles told Starr News they will continue to stay at the hotel until what is rightfully theirs is paid.
“We are just making sure that what is rightfully ours we take it before we go, then we advise ourselves as players because it is so glaring that the environment is not favouring some of us.
“We cannot devote all our time for the nation and at the end, what we do is not even recognized…because as a woman you cannot play football your entire life,” Myles told Starr News in an interview.
