The head coach of Hasaacas Ladies, Yusif Basigi has dismissed reports suggesting that he deliberately prevents his players from honouring national team call up.
Reports emerged recently that the former soft-spoken gaffer failed to release his players to join the Black Queens camp.
Speaking on The Tracker on Citi TV Basigi stated that his allegiance to Ghana will always be paramount.
“I am a Ghanaian and a patriot, I have worked for the national team since 2011," he said on Citi TV.
“It's not about the Black Queens it's about Ghana.
“If I should say my players should not play for the Black Queens it means I don’t love the country.
“It is not about individuals because the national team is for the nation.
“I don’t see why I would prevent my players from representing the national team.
“However six of my players were with the Princesses,” he added.
Basigi led Hasaacas Ladies to a second-place finish in the maiden edition of the CAF Women’s Champions League but emerged with four individual awards.
