Mas-ud Draman has expressed his disappointments with the inability of the Black Maidens to win the 2012 African Women’s National Tema of the Year accolade at Thursday’s GLO-CAF Awards in Accra.
The Ghanaians were beaten to the award by Equitorial Guinea, who won the African Women’s Championship on home soil.
The Black appeared to be favourites for the crown after their sterling performance at the 2012 FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Championship, where they won bronze.
The Asante Kotoko trainer who guided the team to win Africa’s first ever medal at the world showpiece, feels disappointed.
“I was disappointed because many Ghanaians were expecting us to win that category,” Draman told Accra-based Happy FM
“But when I look at the criteria for the award, then you may have little to say.
“But I’m still surprised because what we did was historic and deserved to be in there.
“Nevertheless this should spare us on as a country to work hard.”
